Famed Association To Perform 
At Winter Frolics Concert 


'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

One of the nation's top perform- 
ing pop groups in popularity and 
record sales, "The Association" 
will kick off the 1968 Palm Beach 
Junior College Winter Frolics, 
October 18th concert at the West 
Palm Beach Municipal Auditori- 

According to Larry Kfasulak, 
Social Chairman of the S G.A. 
Spirit and Traditions Board, "The 
Association" represents the first 
■time a group of this caliber and 
-current popularity has been 
booked for a PBJC function. "Our 
problem in the past," he said, 
"has been strictly one of money! 
We have never been able to af- 
ford a group or artist who enjoys 
a. national reputation like "The 
Association." Such groups can be 
booked only on guarantees of 
$10,000 to $15,000 and up for a 
performance. Our social budget 
cannot stand this type of drain for 

PBJC Circle K 
Gets New Name 

Six delegates from PBJC attend- 
ed the 13th Annual Circle K Con- 
vention in Philadelphia. 

Charlie Elderd, President of 
Circle K, said the convention was 
a real beneficial program to the 
club and members. Elderd also 
added, "Florida was a real power- 
house in interviewing candidates 
jfor Circle K International and 
|discussing Florida's part in a dues 

s The convention concluded with 
'Florida being officially named 
*s "Little International." 

a single performance as our entire 
social budget for one calendar 
year has been running around 
$8,000 a year." 

Stressing that many students 
have approached him and other 
SGA members with a desire to 
have better known talent at 
campus social activities, Chair- 
man Krasulak went on to say 
that the forthcoming "Association" 
concert is an attempt to bring top 
talent to the student body in an- 
swer to their request 

'"However," he stated, "our 
budget for this type of talent must 
of necessity be underwritten by 
an additional cost to the student, 
as current funds will not defray the 
expense of booking such artists." 

Krasulak added, "I think many 
students will remember the disap- 
pointment we had this spring 
when Tommy James and the Shon- 
dells failed to appear for the 1968 
spring frolics." 

The money allocated for this 
performance, a sum of $2,500, is 
to be used to help pay the ex- 
pense of the concert by "The As- 

"Even with this $2,500," con- 
tinued Chairman Krasulak," it is 
necessary to charge the students 
over and above their current Ac- 
tivities Fee in order to meet ex- 
penses for the concert." 

"I believe, however, that the 
program we have arranged for 
Winter Frolics will prove to be 
the finest sn far, and the students 
will find the extra cost well worth- 

Regular tickets to the "Associa- 
tion" concert will be on sale (by 
the Auditorium) to the general 
public at $4.50, $4.00 and $3.00 per

$2.00 per ticket for the seat of 
the student's choice. 

This means that a $4.50 seat 
costs the student $2.00, a $4.00 
seat costs $1.50, and a $3.00 seat 
may be obtained for $1.00. "We 
have thus made it possible for 
the student to see "The Associa- 
tion" for the price of a movie by 
underwriting that portion of the 
ticket cost which the budget of 
the SGA Social Chairman can af- 
ford 1 " commented Krasulak. 

"This means that $6,000 plus, 
of the expense of "The Associa- 
tion" concert, will be paid out of 
the social fund (if 3,000 tickets are 
sold) which is part of .the students' 
Activity Fee." 

Tickets are available at the col- 
lege bookstore between the hours 
of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. until Sept. 

Student ID cards are required 
for the special PBJC student 

For dates and guests without 
ID cards, additional tickets (ex- 
cept the $3.00 seat) may be pur- 
chased at $.50 off the regular 
price Therefore $4.50 seats are 
$4.00, and $4.00 seats are $3.50. 
However, there are only 3,242 
seats available.

Lack Of Black Involvement Here 
Triggers Hew Afro-American Club 


'Comber News Editor 

"There is a need for black uni- 
ty on campus and a need for 
blacks to organize themselves for 
a voice in campus activities. The 
black people should be a more 
integral part of the campus", 
stated Willie Buchanan, initiator 
and provisionary Treasurer of the 
recently evolved Organization of 
Afro-American Affairs. 

A main objective of the OAA is 
to effect communication and inter- 
action between Afro-American stu- 
dents and the members of the 
community, providing a ■congenial 
social atmosphere for Afro-Ameri- 
can students at PBJC. Feeling 
that there has been too little par- 
ticipation of black students in 
campus organizations previously, 
the coordinating committee of the 
OAA hopes that "the OAA will 
appeal to those not caring to par- 
ticipate in other organizations." 

Further goals of the Organiza- 
tion of Afro-American Affairs in- 
clude promoting a general aware- 
ness of Afro-American culture, 
supporting curricula in Afro- 
American history and related 
courses, and aiding in reducing the 
effects of racial discrimination. 

Pursuing these purposes the 
OAA proposes to establish a repre- 
sentative voice in Student Govern- 

ment at PBJC for Afro-American 
Students and to promote aware- 
ness of Afro-American culture 
through assemblies which are so 
oriented. This would include hav- 
ing local and national black lead- 
ers address the student body. 

Membership in the OAA is open 
to all full time students maintain- 
ing a cumulative average of 2.0 or 
better. First term Freshmen are 
ineligible. All students meeting 
these requirements may apply to 
the OAA executive committee for 
reviewal and decision. 

Encouraged and supported by 
the OAA is the workshop course 
in Afro-American studies being 
offered at PBJC on Thursday 
evenings during the fall term. 

Mrs. Trinette Robinson, of the 
Social Science faculty, who serves 
as instructor and coordinator of 
the workshop, explained that the 
course will be "concerned with the 
history of the Afro- American, with 
emphasis on his origins, enslave- 
ment, subculture and his struggle 
for civil rights and human dig- 

PBJC Graduate Tony Benjamin 
Awarded Political Intern Spot 

PBJC graduate, Tony Benjamin 
has been selected by Florida Con- 
gressman Paul. G. Rogers to 
represent the junior college as 
a political intern m Washington, 
D. C. 

Benjamin was one of three stu- 
dents selected for the program 
from the 9th Congressional Dis- 
trict, which Rogers represents. 

The interns were chosen on the 
basis of their academic record 
and a written statement submitted 
to a panel of Social Science in- 
structors telling why they thought 
they should be selected. 

One student was picked from 
each of the three junior colleges 
in the 9th District, Palm Beach 
Indian River and Edison.

Become Involved 

The SGA has gotten "involved" for the student by bringing 
him one of the nations top recording groups, the "Association." 
Your elected student leaders have shown that they care by 
attempting to do whatever they can to serve you to their fullest 

The many ways in which the SGA represents you goes be- 
yond the mere selection of entertainment. 

Through opinion polls they seek to find what you the student 
really wants. 

However, you don't have to wait to be sought to get involved. 
At the two recent national political nominating conventions, 
young people demanded . . . and were heard. 

Students do play an important part in forming policy on 
our campus and they are assuming a very important role in 
helping to shape national policy as was indicated at the con- 

On our campus the student can be heard through their 
elected SGA representatives in the student. He may even be- 
come personally involved by filing for candidancy in the 
forthcoming freshmen and sophomore senate elections. Those 
who prefer not to run are urged to express their views and 
opinions by exerqsing their privilege to vote. 

Elections on the PBJC campus are an important function, 
in showing the college student how he may get involved in 
government, whatever the level. 

Afro's Organize 

The black student at PBJC has requested and has received 
a charter authorizing the formation of the Organization of 
Afro- American Affairs. 

Membership to the organization is not restricted to Afro- 
Americans but is open to all full-time students who have an 
established 2.0 grade average. 

We believe that organizations of this type canjoster a better 
understanding among the various races and cultures, being a 
benefit to not only the campus, but also to the community. 

However, we feel that there has been an obvious lack of 
participation by the Negro student in a majority of campus 

PBJC has always extended a welcome to the black student 
even prior to the closing of Roosevelt Junior College. 

The Beachcomber, as the voice of the student, is dedicated 
to support those organizations which will bring about the 
betterment of the PBJC campus community.

Voice Of The Students 

Questions Motivate Controversy 

Dear Editor: 

One of the biggest controversies 
on campus this fall seems to stem 
around this series of questions: 

1. Why are we, the students, 
paying for Frolics tickets? 

2. Why are we, the students, 
paying an Activity Fee? 

3. Who is responsible for the 
handling of Frolics"— Larry 
Krasulak or Rodney Smith? 

4. Why can't Frolics be held 
on our .campus? 

5. Why can't so and so be al-

McCarthy Strong National Victor 
Nixon - PBJC Winner By Four 


•< oinlier Asbociato Editor 

Results of the April 24th na- 
tionwide collegiate presidential pri- 
mary election showed Senator Eu- 
gene McCarthy decisively outscor- 
wg a large field of announced and 
unannounced candidates. 

The National Collegiate Presi- 
dential Primary, jointly sponsored 
by Sperry Rand's Univac Division 
and TIME magazine, polled over 
one million students on over 1200 
campuses in Choice '68. 

Of the 1,072,830 votes cast, Mc- 
Carthy was the first choice of 
285,988, followed by Senator Rob- 
ert Kennedy with 213,832 votes 
and Richard Nixon third with 197,- 
167 votes. Over 44% of the stu- 
dents who voted will be eligible 
to go to the polls this November. 

At PBJC, Nixon edged McCarthy 
by only four votes. Nixon received 
214 and McCarthy 210 of the 649 
first place votes cast by the stu- 
dents attending Spring Term I. 
The vote was held at this time on 
our campus because we are on a 
tri-mester system rather than a 
quarter system like the majority 
of the other campuses polled. 

Other candidates finished in the 
following order: Wallace, 91; Ken- 
nedy, 50: Rockefeller, 40; Hum- 
phrey, 22 (write-in); Reagan, 10; 
Lindsey, 9; Halstead, Stasson, and 
President Johnson each garnered 
one vote a piece. 

Total first place votes, in the 
nationwide primary, for other 
leading candidates were 115,937 
for Rockefeller, who had not an- 
nounced his candidacy when the 
vote was held, and 57,362 for 
President Johnson who had with- 
drawn his. 

Vice President Humphrey, who 
was net on the ballot, collected 
18,535 write-in votes, over 60 c/ r of 
all write-ins cast. No other candi- 
date received a significant write- 
in vote nationally or locally. 

Students also indicated their 
second and thud choices for presi- 
dent on the ballot. McCarthy led 
in second choices with 203,820 na- 
tionally, 306 locally; followed by 
Kennedy with 175,914 nationally, 
101 locally; Rockefeller third with 
170,319 nationally but placed 5th 
locally with 12; and Nixon with 
118,960 nationally and 3rd locally 
with 86 votes. 

No other actual or potential 
candidate made a significant show- 
ing in first place votes. Among 
them, however, George Wallace 
garnered 33,078 votes, Ronald 
Reagan 28,215, and John Lind-

while Harold Stassen barely ex-

McCarthy scored well in all parts

and McCarthy in the southern

H» Wmk World's Witcliig' 

The question has been asked, "What is the significance of 
the Choice '68 vote?" 

The significance ought to be easy to see: the pundits, from 
Headers Digest to the Washington columnists, who have been 
saymg that the majority of the students aren't as much against 
the war, aren't as left wing as the demonstrations make it 
appear, are wrong. 

A look at two sample sets of statistics points this out: 
-More than 62% of the students voted against the war, with 
45% calling for a phased reduction of the American military 
commitment and 17% demanding immediate withdraw!. Less 
than half that number, 30%, favored an increase or all out 
military effort. A miserable seven per cent supported the 
present policy. 

If one divides the candidates into two groups, the "liberals" 
and the "conservatives," the students voted overwhelmingly 
61.6% to 30.4%, for the "liberals." 

Such a division is partially arbitrary, of course. But one can 
group nine candidates-McCarthy, Kennedy, Rockefeller, Lind- 
stey, Percy, Hatfield, Halstead, King, and Stassen - as "liberals" 
on the basis of their desire for some kind of end to the war, 
and swift decisive action to deal with the problems of racism 
and poverty. The other five candidates-Nixon, Johnson, 
Humphrey, Wallace, and Reagan -can be classified as "con- 
servatives," with the basic view of continuing the fight in 
Vietnam and using force to put down racial unrest. 

Both sets of statistics, then, make the point clear: a sub- 
stantial majority of students-almost two-thirds-oppose the 
war and want action to bring black people into full participa- 
tion in the society. 

This is not to say thai activists-the kind who take over 
administration buildings when intransigent administrations 
balk at even miniscule change-are in the majority. But it is 
obvious that their causes, if not their tactics, or their proposed 
solutions, have the support of a majority of students. 

But the press and the establishment view (which the press 
as a whole represents) is unable to see this, probably because 
they don't want to see it. 

The emphasis given by the press is one of the keys, not 
just in "morning after" coverage (which was lousy-page 27 
in the New York Times, no mention in the Washington Post), 
but in the following weeks and months. 

The press could have made Choice '68 as significant as New 
Hampshire, Massachusetts, or Indiana. But it didn't. It took 
an incident like the demonstration in Chicago to show our 
discontentment with the choice of the party's nominee, for dur 
voices to be heard. 

^ Some in the press have tried to discredit the vote in Choice 
©8, because of the turn-out, (although more people voted than 
did in the New Hampshire or Massachusetts primaries) and 
the fact that Vice President Humphrey wasn't on the ballot. 

But the press chose to ignore it, which meant that it's im- 
pact was slight and those in the Establishment, like conven- 
tion pawnbrokers who are inclined to ignore students any 
way, were able to do so. 

It is safe to say, m my opinion, that a majority of the students 
who voted in Choice '68 still believe in the American political 
system. But if a million such students can make their opinion 
so clearly known and yet be laughed at, or ignored, then the 
message from the Establishment to the students will also be 
clear: We aren't going to pay any attention to your views. The 
only way you can win a hearing is to interfere with us so 
blatantly that we have to notice you.

Perhaps the onlooker is some- 
what taken back at his first 
glimpse of what are obviously five 
adult males, very obviously 
dressed in tiny-tot garb, complete 
with beanies and little-boy over- 
alls. The surprise soon turns to 
pleasure, however, as the "Mama's 
Boys" play everything from soft- 
rock to psychedelic music to suit 
every music-lover. 

The "Mama's Boys" have ap- 
peared in concert from the windy 
city of Chicago, their former 
headquarters, to the gold coast 
of Miami, with such well-knowns 
as "The Beach Boys" and "Sonny 
and Cher." They have played on 
college campuses in the north 
and south and have toured up and 
down the coast. The group Is to 
record an album to be released in 
the near future. 

The "Mama's Boys" will toddle 
their way onto the stage at PBJC 
for part of the annual Winter 
Frolics tradition, presenting a 
dance and show Saturday eve- 
ning, October 19, from 8 p.m. to 
12 p.m. in the gymnasium. 

SGA is bringing the "Mania's

Health and Physical Education 
Department at Palm Beach Junior 
College since 1958 has been ap- 
pointed Intramural Director, ac- 
cording to Mrs. Elisabeth Erling, 
department chairman. 

The position involves planning, 
organization, and administration 
of the extensive intramural and 
extramural program carried on at 
the college, Mrs. Erling said. 

"There. are 15 to 18 intramural 
activities each term," Mrs. Erling 
said, "as well as the meetings be- 
tween schools that involve the best 
athletes in the intramural program 
rather than a varsity team." 

All instructors work in some 
part of the intramural program, 
Mrs. Erling said, but the direction 
has been concentrated in the posi- 
tion of Intramural Director since 
the fall of 1966. 

Bell is a native of Cleveland, 
and received his Bachelor's and 

Master's Degrees from the Uni- 
versity of Florida. 

He said he planned no major 
changes in the PBJC program. 

"We already have one of the 
best intramural and extramural 
programs in the state," he said.

Rockefeller received 170,914 sec- 
ond place votes and 174,289 third 
place votes for a total of 344,608. 
Senator Eugene McCarthy re- 
ceived the most second place 
votes, 209,820 and a total of 
338,233 combined second and third 
place votes, second only to Rock- 

Senator Robert Kennedy ran 
third behind Rockefeller and Mc- 
Carthy in combined second and 
third place votes with 295,268. For- 
mer Vice President Nixon was 
fourth, further back with 213,040. 

By dividing the country into 
ten geographical sectors, it was 
determined that Senator McCar- 
thy had beaten his opponents 
decisively in six regional areas. 

In New England, for example, 
McCarthy polled 29,301 votes 
against 16,573 for Senator Robert 
Kennedy and 8,912 for Richard 

In the Mid-Atlantic sector, com- 
prised of Delaware, New Jersey, 
New York, and Pennsylvania, Mc- 
Carthy outdistanced his competi- 
tion by winning 55^364 ballots, 
26,242 more than his closest rival, 
Senator Kennedy, who totaled 
29,122 votes. 

On Western campuses, McCar- 
thy fared equally well. In the Far 
West zone of California, Hawaii 
and Nevada, the Minnesota Sena- 
tor won 33,780 votes, as opposed 
to Kennedy with 22,776, and Nixon 
with 14,347. The Northwestern sec- 
tor shows roughly the same pic- 
ture, with McCarthy totaling 
13,364 votes, Nixon 9,734, and Ken- 
nedy 9,473. 

Senator McCarthy won in addi- 
tion the Central Plains Sector and 
fared a strong second behind Nix- 
on in the Southwest and Mountain 

Senator Kennedy ran a consist- 
ent second in seven out of the 
ten sectors, and ran surprisingly 
well in the Southeast and Southern 

The Southeast region (District 
of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, 
North Carolina, Tennessee, Virgin- 
ia, West Virginia) showed Nixon 
the leader with 29,969 ballots, but 
with Kennedy not far behind with 

In the Deep South, moreover, 
Kennedy ran almost as power- 
fully. The totals: Nixon, 23,106; 
Kennedy, 17,384; McCarthy, 
13.018; Wallace, 9,915. 

In general, students voted in 
favor of a phased reduction of 
U.S. military activity in Vietnam, 
temporary suspension of the 
bombing, and education, as the 
area that should receive the high- 
est priority in government spend- 
ing to meet the "urban crisis." 

45% of the students polled fa- 
vored reduction of U.S. military 
efforts in Vietnam and 17% fa- 
vored immediate withdrawal, 
while 21% voted for an "all out 
U.S. military effort." 

29% voted for a suspension of 
bombing, 28% for cessation, while 
25% voted to intensify the bomb- 
ing in North Vietnam. 11% fa- 
vored the current level of bomb- 
ing, and 4% favored the use of 
nuclear weapons. 

Education and job training were 
favored for top-priority in federal 
urban spending with 40% and 39% 
respectively. Riot control was 
third with 12%. Housing with 6% 
and income subsidy with 3% were 
fourth and fifth. 

Over half of the supporters of 
Senator McCarthy, voted for 
either a phased reduction of U.S. 
military activity in Vietnam or 
immediate, withdrawal of U.S. 

85% of McCarthy's supporters 
preferred either a phased reduc- 
tion in US. military activity in 
Vietnam or immediate withdrawal 
of U.S. forces from Vietnam. 
This figure represents the most 
support for those two courses of 
action among all the candidates 
56% of McCarthy's supporters pre- 
ferred phased reduction while 29% 
preferred immediate withdrawal 
of U.S. forces. 51% of thooe voting 
for McCarthy also favored a 
permanent cessation of the bomb- 
ing in North Vietnam. 

69% of Kennedy's supporters 
preferred either phased reduction 
or immediate withdrawal of U.S. 
military activity in Vietnam: 50% 
voted for phased reduction and 
19% for immediate withdrawal 
30% of Kennedy's supporters 
voted for permanent cessation of 
the bombing, while 33% voted for 
a temporary cessation of the 

Reagan and Nixon were the two 
Republicans representing the most 
support for increased and all out 
military efforts in Vietnam. 65% 
of Reagan's supporters add 52% 
of Nixon's chose those two courses 
of action. 

56% of Wallace's supporters pre- 
ferred all out U.S. military ef- 
fort in Vietnam. 

Reagan and Wallace represent- 
ed the most support for use of 
nuclear weapons on North Viet- 
nam. 12% of Reagan's supporters 
voted for this bombing policy, 
while 54% chose intensified bomb- 

Nixon represented the greatest 
support for maintaining the cur- 
rent level of bombing, with 15% 
of his supporters voting for that 

All candidates drew strong sup- 
port for education and job op- 
portunities as deserving highest 
priority in dealing with the 'urban 
crisis." Wallace, Reagan, and Nix- 
on, however, were the only can- 
didates also drawing significant 
support for riot control and stric- 
ter law enforcement "as the top 
priority course of action. 48% of 
Wallace's supporters, 32% of Rea-

for riot control and stricter law

Two hundred and twenty-four 
sophomores turned out to select 
twelve representatives to the Stu- 
dent Government senate. 

When contacted about the re- 
sults of the election, an Elections 
Board spokesman stated, "This 
was the lightest turnout for a 
sophomore election in PBJC's 
history. Two years ago two hun- 
dred and fifty-eight sophomores 
turned out, but now it's getting 
a little ridiculous." 

The Senators elected with

The criteria used to measure the 
effectiveness of a school prepara- 
tion was the percentage of those 
who graduated in three years. 

His paper identified 61 insti- 
tutional and community charac- 
teristics common to all 17 jun- 
ior colleges which strongly re- 
lated both postively and nega- 
tively to transfer effectiveness. 

Atwell also presented a paper

Mr. Elbert E. Bishop, former 
Registrar of Palm Beach Jun-

14, 1968, in Rocky Mount, North 

From 1937 to 1967 Mr. Bishop 
served PBJC as 
registrar, moving 
with JC to all 3 
campus sites. 
While being Reg- 
istrar here at col-

served as Presi-

He received the first plaque 
ever given for 20 years service 
as an executive committee 
member and an officer of the 
Association of Counciling com- 
piling longer service than any 


other member. 

Mr. Bishop received his B. S. 
at Middle Tennessee State Teach-

From 1927 Mr. Bishop worked

When quizzed about the emer-

Elections Board on the first 
day of voting, the spokesman 
related that nine candidates 
had violated Election Procedure 
Rule No. 8.

FAU-PBJC Conferences 
Affirm Close Relationship 

Conferences at Palm Beach 
Junior College and Florida At- 
lantic University last week "re- 
affirmed and elaborated the close 
cooperation between the two in- 
stitutions" according to Dr. Ken- 
neth R. Michels, Dean of FAU's 
College of Science. 

"We are particularly pleased 
with our partnership in Ocean 
Engineering and other areas of 
science and technology," Dean 
Michels said. 

Reporting on student accom- 
plishment, Charles R. Stephan, 
chairman of FAU's Department 
of Ocean Engineering, said 17 

of the department's students in 
the three years of its existence 
have been former PBJC stu- 

Stephan said that in Ocean 
Engineering it would soon be a 
four or five year degree on two 
campuses. "We will be adding 
Master's Degree soon," he said. 

Dean. Graham, summing up the 
two conferences, said that coop- 
eration would be continued in 
existing programs, and that sev- 
eral "new and interesting ideas" 
for future cooperation were ex-

Editorials Fail 

It took WTVJ News Commentator Ralph Renick 100 edi- 
torials, on crime m Dade County, to convince the citizens 
of Miami to get involved. 

The Beachcomber has onlv tried thiee times to get the 
students of PBJC involved and it appears that oui effoits were 
to no avail. 

In the recent sophomore senate elections only 14 candi- 
dates filed for 12 seats 

Only 38 people made an eftoit to determine which of the 
senate hopefuls weie in fact qualified 

The gieatest lack of concern however, was displayed at 
the polls, as only 224 people turned out to vote 

Today is the final day in which fieshmen may file for 
candidacy in Setember 26-27 senate elections 

Your Student Government can function in the best intei- 
ests of the students, only if the students get involved 

A Place For Sex 

Some students seem to think PBJC is a proving ground 
for their aggressive sex activities 

College is the place to learn and it is desirable for the 
student to get a well-rounded education including the facts 
about sex. There is more to this education than the basic 
facts, the student should learn when, where, and under what 
condition they should do their homework 

The cafeteria, SAC lounge, hallways, and class rooms 
are not the places and between or during class is not the 
time to exhibit your sex desiies. 

Even though only a few coarse individuals paiticipate 
in these ill-staged scenes, they reflect poorly on the large 
majority of students who come to school to get an education 
and not to be embairassed by people who have neglected to 
control their emotions. 

Just One Vote 

One man— only one vote. 

"What difference does one vote make? What could be 
more insignificant?" 

Only one vote decided who would receive the final seat 
in the sophomore senate. 

Is YOUR one vote insignificant? Exercise youi right

Service-Social Club Union Seen 

by Jacquie Boiling

A tragic accident may bring 
about a closer bond between 
service and social clubs 

A proposed dance sponsored by 
the six social and four service 
organizations on campus to raise 
money for the Tommy - Jimmy 
Fund may take place in the"near 

The June 14 automobile acci- 
dent on Congress Avenue was 
just another unfortunate occur- 
rence to most people. But for 
the families of Tommy Bran- 
nen and Jimmy Shore it was 
the beginning of a nightmare. 

When he was iy 2 years old, 
Tommy Brarmen contracted polio 
During the next 12V2 years he 
had 18 major operations Yet he 
remained a very active boy and 
when he entered Cardinal New- 
man High School, he became 
interested in golf 

On the morning of June 14 
Tommy and his friend Jimmy 
Shore along with two other boys 
left for a local golf tournament 

At the corner of Forest Hill 
Road and Congress Avenue 
their car was struck by a south- 
bound car. Tommy was thrown 
from the car and was discov- 
ered unconscious. He is still 
unconscious today. 

Jimmy managed to remain in 
the car but his right eye and 
side were severely damaged 

At the present time the boys 
are coming along even better 
than expected Jimmy has start 
ed back into school at John I 
Leonard but goes to the Reha- 
bilitation Center three times a 
week for treatment His insur- 
ance company has taken care of 
the bills up until now but soon 
this will stop. 

Tommy is still lying uncon- 
scious on a hospital bed Since 
the accident he has had six ma- 
jor operations on his brain. 

The bills now exceed $35,000 

with his insurance only cover- 
ing $10,000 of it. Each day 
medication and hospitalization 
cost $200, and for parents with 
six other children the bills are 

reaching staggering heights.

We men have always recognized the existence of the 
double standard as portrayed on Betty Wright's recording 
"Girls Can't Do What the Guys Do (And Still Be a Lady)." 

But that's just it. That's the way we liked it, the way we 
allowed it to be. Now, girls right here at PBJC seem to be 
reversing this up-until-now appreciated tradition. I'm not 
known to have the best set of eyes m the cosmos, but my 
pupils start playing fried egg sunny-side-up (extra large grade 
A) whenever I happen to walk the hall this term. 

Any combination of miniskirts, pantdresses, and some 
things that give every indication of being nothing but baggy 
Bermudas are in evidence on our sacred walkways, our staid 
lawns, and in our humble classrooms. 

No complaints, mind you. But all of these styles which 
are supposedly deemed "spoitswear" rather than "school 
attire," set in motion an outcry for equal privileges for male 
students. Not that we expect to adopt THESE fashions, but 
surely bermuda shorts (even the baggy kind, no less) can 
be no worse on males than what has become known as the 
Professor's Delight-<-the miniskirt in the third seat on the 
left-hand side-OR-the case of the hiked hemlme! 

If the Deans of Men and Women were only more aware 
of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we men wouldn't protest so 

As it is, we feel only the pain of gross discrimination

It's that time of year when football prognosticators 
over the country begin to loosen up on their talents once a 

Gollege and pro football get underway in Florida 
weekend and our sports staff plans to make its own wee] 
predictions; well be keeping a running record on the Mi( 
Dolphins, the University of Florida, Florida State, and 
University of Miami, as the season progresses. 

The Miami Dolphins, of the American Football Lea|_ 
opened its season last Saturday night against the powerfj 
Houston Oilers. And Houston was powerful as they thwart 
the Dolphins 24-10. Miami has been plagued by injuries 
season and will probably finish with a 6-8 record. 

In college action, the University of Florida may have 
most successful team of the three. We predict a 9-1 seastt 
for the Gators. This weekend they host Tampa Air Forf 
which should be a pushover for Florida. 

A favorable season is also predicted for Florida Sta! 
possibly finishing with an 8-2 record. This Saturday 
invade Maryland which should be an easy victory. 

Miami starts the season against mighty Northwesti 
from the Big Ten Conference, which offers some pretty 
competition. We'll look for a 7-3 record identical with 
year's, for. this season. 

Benefit Dance . . . 

The establishment of the Elbert 
jr. Bishop Fund, a scholarship 
.fjjjid for deserving students at 
pajm Beach Junior College, has 
been announced by the PBJC 
Women's Club. 

Mr. Bishop, the first registrar 
at PBJC and the first full-time 
administrative official of any pub- 
lic junior college in Florida, died 
Saturday, September 14, in Rocky 
Mount, N. C. 

"A number of Mr. Bishop's 
friends indicated that they would 
like an opportunity to donate to 
a living memorial for him," said 

Mrs. Glen A. Marsteller, chair- 
man of the club. 

"We felt that a scholarship 
fund in the college where he 
spent so much of his life would 
be a fitting memorial." 

Mrs. Marsteller said the usual 
scholarship efforts of the club 
would be channeled into the El- 
bert E. Bishop Fund in the fu- 
ture, and that donations to the 
fund would be accepted by the 
college Finance Department. 

"Checks should be made pay- 
able to Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege, with a notation on the 

face that it is to be credited 
to the Elbert E. Bishop fund," 
she said. 

The establishment of the fund 
was welcomed by Dr. Harold C. 
Manor, PBJC president. 

"Mr. Bishop was an impor- 
tant part of Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College from 1937 to 1967," 
Dr. Manor said. "A scholar- 
ship fund seems a most appro- 
priate way to honor his mem- 

Mr. Bishop spent ten years in 
the service of the Palm Beach 
County 'school system prior to be- 

ginning his tenure as Registrar 
at PBJC. 

He moved to the county in 1927, 
serving at Delray Beach, Canal 
Point, Pahokee and South Bay 
as athletic director and principal 
before moving to the college then 
located in buildings at Palm 
Beach High School. 

In June, 1967, he and his wife, 
Ruth Friend Bishop, a 30-year 
teacher in the county school sys- 
tem, jointly announced their re- 
tirement. Mrs. Bishop has ex- 
pressed her approval of the schol- 
arship fund set up by the PBJC 
Women's Club.

goal can be achieved. 

One of the first proposed ac- 
tivities set up to foster this 
unity is a benefit dance with all 
proceeds donated to the Tom- 
my-Jimmy Fund. 
Tentative plans schedule this 
marathon-like dance sometime in 
late October, lasting from approx- 
irhately 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. 
It would be held on a school day 
so that students would be able 
to come to the dance in between 
their classes.

written by Rodney Smith. The 
immediate preparation and sub- 
mission of this Constitution is im- 
perative, for until it is ratified 
by the Student Senate, the ICC 
is not a fully recognized and au- 
thorized club on campus. 

A Penny Goes For, 
To PBJCs Orphan 

To those of us in the United States, a penny does not 
go very far nor mean very much. But a single penny can 
mean a great deal to Maria Pignatiello, PBJCs little girl. 

Many students are unaware tnat the PBJC student body 
financially supports an orphan in Italy through the co-ordi- 
nated efforts of the Vets Club and the Christian Children's 
Fund, who sponsor the orphanage. The money needed comes 
from pennies, nickels and dimes tossed into the Wishing Well 
located by the main office. It 

Gross, and Dennis Pearce. 

"This leaves two seats vacant," 
reported a spokesmen for the 
Elections Board. "These seats 
will be filled by appointment of 
the Executive Department and 
ratified by the Senate." 

The applicants will be inter- 
viewed by the Chairman of the 
Leadership and Service Board. 
Upon his recommendations the 
Executive Department chooses 
from the potential senators, two 
candidates, who then go be- 
fore the Senate to be ratified. 

Any freshman who wishes to 
file for the vacant seats may do 
so beginning Monday, Septem-, 
ber 30. Applications may be 
picked up in AD 05. Closing date 
for filing is Friday, October 4,

First, it is to provide for the or-

the title of Miss Wishing Well 
is chosen by a student vote.

Student pleas of discontent in regard to the present man-

by the Student Government Association.

that these vows have been either forgotten or perhaps just 

lgn ° r in recent yeais the Beachcomber has responded to the 
dies of the students by investigating the various allegations 
and complaints concerning the Prophet Company s manage- 

men \¥e do not see how any self-respecting SGA representa-

obvious grievances being voiced on the campus during the 
past weeks. 

Matter Of Concern 

A democratic government requires an interested and 
knowledgeable public. It takes concern not only for the issues, 
hut concern for the representatives who decide upon these 

i^siios. . 

When 13 students, ten ot which weie qualified, out ot 

, . Lis-, df 1,800 file tor Senatorial seats, we feel that this con- 

iites d del mile lack of concern. 

Democrat depends upon the individual. But how can 

, unpus have a democratic form of government when the 

uvidnal student huls in his own obligation to be a repre- 

ntative oi even cast his vote lor the candidate of his choice?

ditional campaign speeches were 
not given." 

"I hope you don't misunder- 
stand, there will still be elec-

ceive one vote to confirm his 
seat." The spokesman con- 
tinued, "Besides, the six amend- 
ments have to be voted on by 
the freshmen." 

Each amendment must pass a 
three-fifths majority vote of the

Most Involved Triangle Of The '601 Speak Soply 

by Jon Miller 

Tnmtipr Stuff Writer 

"People, people who need peo- 
ple . . ." 

And this is what director Rich- 
ard Lester has purveyed in 

Although the film is an adapta- 
tion of the novel, it is essentially 
Lester's story throughout. What 
with his sharp camera cuts and 
precise editing made so familiar 
in the Beatles' films and "How I 
Won the War," Lester has now 
transferred the process to a con- 
ventional plot (i.e., plot as Holly- 
wood leads one to imagine) and 
made himself omnipresent. 

All the while we may be fol- 
lowing Julie Christie, George C. 
Scott, or Richard Chamberlain 
across the screen, too, we are 
watching Lester intermittently 
insert the actor"s Immediate 
thoughts — an innovation seen 
first in "The Pawnbroker" and 
which has met with questioned 
success since. 
There is no question here. The 


cuts aren't responsible in devel- 
oping the characters so much as 
they affirm that we are being 
given people. To relate or identi- 
fy with? To realize their sym- 
bolic play against one another? 

But one can't escape the notion 
that these actors were gathered 
together to portray people, and 
certainly their weaknesses. 

Miss Christie is Petulia. Little 
more need be said. When given 
a suitable screenplay (and "Petu- 
lia" is definitely above being 
just suitable) she can exude all 
that she did as the unscrupulous 
witch in "Darling." If it be a 
poor script or muddled attempt 
as in "Fahrenheit 451" and "Dr. 
Zhivago," Miss Christie leaves 
one sitting in anticipation of her 
next screen entrance. 

Enter Petulia with husband 
(Richard Chamberlain) shaking 
it at a rock dance benefit to 
promote highway safety. Flash 
for an instant to a bleeding leg. 
Back to the dance. Lester is

The Civitan time capsule is coming down. After months 
of planning, discussion, and replanning, it has been decided 
that a new, smaller capsule is to be constructed in a dif- 
ferent location. (This is mainly due to the fact that the site 
of the present capsule is to be occupied by a new building 
in about five years,) 

Campus Combings 

It is heartening to know, that in this nation of student 
activism and political -protest, there is one campus that re- 
mains unmoved by candidates appeals for votes. This is that 

Fourteen candidates, running for twelve senate seats, 
attracted, out of a student body of five thousand, an anemic 
vote of less than three hundred in the sophomore elections. 

Firstly, only fourteen people showed enough rabid dedi- 
cation to cause to file for nomination. Secondly, the votes of 
the three hundred were, in many instances, representative 
only of certain interests around campus. 

Although it is true that out of three hundred, one hun- 
dred does not constitute a majority, one group of less than 
one hundred students effectively controlled enough votes to 
swing the election in favor of at least seven of the candidates, 
(To be specific, said group now has seven seats in the senate 
which favor it, four neutrals, and one senator who was not 
supported by the group.) 

Any student who feels that the senate is making a wrong 
decision at any time has no one to blame but a small group 
of political activists on campus, and perhaps himself. 

Is anyone still wondering why he had to pay for frolics 
tickets this year? The Association COSTS. It was either pay 
their price or get the Singing Nuns.

SGA President Rodney Smith stated in his 
opening address to the Senate and .at last Sat- 
urday's District IV meeting that FJCSGA and 
jDistrict IV in its current form can serve "no 
obvious good." 

FJCSGA is the Florida Junior 
College Student Government As- 
sociation. It is a conglomeration 
of all 32 junior college SGA's 
throughout the state. It's purpose 
is to form a stronger bond be- 
Mausz tween the participating colleges. 

District IV is one of the divisional break- 
downs of FJCSGA. It consists of seven junior 
colleges: Palm Beach, Florida - Keys, Miami 
Dade South, Miami Dade North, Broward, Edi- 
son, and Indian River. 

District IV President Greg Mausz refuted 
President Smith's remarks — "When he criti- 
cized he should have given a solution, not just 
a rash statement" 

Mausz felt that "District IV and FJCSGA 
should be. recognized for hard work. All students 
involved should be given hard work." 

Another issue brought up was lack of inter- 
est in District IV. Mausz said that the students

going to be as tough as last

We play 12 matches and they 
are all going to test our skills." 

The returnees are Lisa deVil-

involved are interested but that there "has 
been no responsibility given to the individual 
schools before." 

Mausz's main solution to District IV's prob- 
lem is the added responsibilities to the dele- 

"We need responsibility. We 
need definite stands on the unit- 
ing of schools, particular issues 
of the definite schools, and par- 
ticularly state legislation. The in- 
terest is there; it is just the re- 
Smi th -sponsibility that lacks." 
Smith feels that there is a poor system of 
unity in District IV. Each school is a confedera- 
tion unto itself. Smith wants to unify and dis- 
cuss problems and issues pertinent to the 

Such issues are the present voting age, 
absentee policy, and the dress code. 

He also stated that he would like to have 
every school policy evaluated, no matter how 
sound it appears to be. 

Smith warned that if something is not done 
soon, he will advocate the withdrawal of PBJC 
from FJCSGA and will try to get all campuses 
to do the same.

tor of Finance. 

Several representatives of the 
ten interested companies attend- 

ed the opening. 

Mr. Lee Hodgkins, Coordina- 
tor of Purchasing, conducted

Senators Voted In 

Six Amendments Ratified 

One hundred and thirty-nine 
Freshmen turned out to vote on 
proposed constitutional amend- 
ments and give a vote of confi- 
dence to the ten qualified candi- 

Those candidates receiving the 
required vote of confidence were: 

Patricia Baker, Clif Burdette, 
Paul Buxton, Edward DeBelle- 
vue, Fran Denman, Vickl Gersch, 
Bill Graham, Gail Greene, Bill 
Gross, and Dennis Pearce. 

The totals of the freshman 
vote on the amendments were 
added to the totals of the sopho- 
more vote on the amendments 
and the results were as fol- 
lows: Amendment 1—82.692 
percent affirmative, Amend- 
ment II— 83.342 percent affirm- 
ative, Amendment IH— 80.500 
percent affirmative, Amend- 
ment IV— 76.528 percent affirm- 
ative, Amendment V— 85.271 
percent affirmative, and 
Amendment VI— 82.812 percent 

A three-fifths (3/5) majority, or 
sixty percent is what was needed 
to ratify the amendments and 
make them law. Since the sue 
amendments were above the six- 
tieth percentile, all are now law.

Time For Changes 

The future or the Flonda Junior College Student Gov- 
ernment Association (FJCSGA) is at present hanging by a 
loose thread. 

FJCSGA in its present form is of no value to the indi- 
vidual junior colleges which it is made of, nor is it progressing 
in a manner that it will be beneficial to these respective 
institutions in the years to come. 

Topics of discussion at the previous district meetings have 
centered mostly around. 1 A district scrapbook. 2. A district 
project (it was suggested at the latest meeting that this project 
be a two day romp in Key Largo in which the '"delegates could 
better got acquainted with each other"). 

3. A district budget (which was debated, amended and 
reamended for two hours and finally accepted in its original 

Programs that provide a service to the entire enrollment 
of each Junior College and not just the delegates must be 
instituted before FJCSGA can become a reality. 

Quality Questioned 

It is very discerning to know that two administrative 
officials were very pleased that 300 full meals were served 
in one day. 

This is very poor considering the day enrollment is 3,421. 

When a majority of the faculty and administration do 
not patronize its own cafeteria and eat off campus, we feel 
this proves the true quality of the food services. 

When a majority of students risk losing their parking 
place to eat a decent meal, we again feel this points out the 
quality of the food service. 

It is of our opinion that Prophet Foods has neglected 
veral of its duties as the contractual agent for food services. 

To list examples: (1) dirty plates have been left stacked 
the tables, (2) the tables are at times neglected to be 
ted clean, (3) the napkin dispensers have been empty, 
(4) the silverware supply is depleted. 

We feel that deep consideration in regard to the above 
3ds should be given before a final decision is made to 
iom receives the food services contract.

f-R Roundup 

Alpha Phi Wins On Two TO Pas 


The Beachcomber Sports Staff has developed a new idea 
on predicting football games. 

Instead of merely predicting Florida games, we are now 
challenging all clubs at PBJC. Each week we shall take on 
a different organization in predicting four college games and 
four pro games 

Five points are to be given for selecting the winning 
team and five points will be given for coming closest in a 
point span basis. In the following week's paper the winner 
shall be announced along with the points made. 
• * * 

The games to be predicted this week are: Florida State 
\s Texas A&M, Southern Cal. vs. U. of Miami, Florida vs. 
Mississippi State, UCLA vs. Syracuse, Miami Dolphins vs 
Houston Oilers, Oakland Raiders vs Boston Patriots, Balti- 
more Colts vs. Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota

"Comeback" is one of the most exciting words in athletics 

Everyone who loves sports has his own special comeback 
memory. The situation can vary from an Arnold Palmer mak- 
ing up three strokes on the final four holes to a Jimmy Ellis 
getting off the canvas and flooring Floyd Patterson. The 
reeling is mutual in any comeback, in sports and life. 

It seems a comeback requires four principle ingredients: 

i. Desire-To make anv comeback one needs to assess 
his present situation and des lre to change it with all his heart. 

l Plan-In order to come back one needs a plan, some- 
thing he can see, as a vision, for the possibility of a change 

3 Commitment-Often he may have a "plan. He must 
commit himself to it, believing it will work 

4. Execution-Often the three above aie in place He

Theatre Arts Workshop is the 
name given to the third work- 
shop at PBJC, which begins Tues- 
day, October 15, from 4-6 p.m 
in the Auditorium. 

The workshop is sponsored by 
the Communications Department, 
and is under the direction of Mr. 
Arthur Musto, speech and drama 

Musto did his undergraduate 
work in dramatics at Carnegie 
Tech. and Ms graduate work in 
directing and acting at the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut 

Exploring the "arts" of the 
theatre, in depth, through the 
media of literature, criticism, 
esthetics, design, and acting is 
the main purpose of the class. 
Another point will be to avoid 
a usual formal class atmosphere. 

Honor Society 
Offers Tutors 

Phi Theta Kappa, campus hon- 
orary society, has announced 
plans to extend a free tutoring 
service to ' all students needing 
help in the various courses of- 
fered here. 

A list of subjects and tutors is 
posted on the first and third 
floors of the library, the guidance 
offices and. in the SAC Lounge 

To receive help, a student is 
requested to call a tutor of the 
subject needing help in and ar- 
range a meeting at the conven- 
ience of both parties. 

Allen Hamlin, chairman of the 
program, stated "Phi Theta Kap- 
pa members are volunteering 
their time to help you help your- 
self. It's free and all you have to 
do is ask." 

Shakespeare, Acting, Dance, 
and Design will be the four areas 
covered during the nine week 
program. However, discussion is 
not only limited to these areas. 

Guests include: Watson B. 
Duncan III, chairman of the 
English Department, who will 
present material on the Shake- 
spearian side of the theatre. 

Lois Meyer, dance instructor 
at PBJC, is slated to explain 
and discuss the importance of 

dance in the theatre world. 

Famed alumus-actor Burt Reyn- 
olds may also be one of the 
guests to appear and talk at the 
workshop, along with other prom- 
inent personalities and artists in 
the theatre today. 

There is no tuitional fee for the 
program, The only charge will 
be a $1.00 registration fee. 

Anyone with a serious interest 
in drama in .the community may 
attend the workshop. 

K Grad Relates Horror 
Of Recent Czech Siege 

by Craig Heyl 

'Comber Associate IMitor 

The night was tilled with gayety and laughter as the 
Nemec family settled for their first night's stay in the land 
of their heritage, Czechoslovakia. 

A few hours later, awakened by the sound of tanks and 
machine gun fire the Nemecs scrambled for protection un- 
der mattresses, as bullets flew overhead. It was Wednesday, 
August 21, the day the Russians invaded Czechoslovakia. 
Graduate Mary Nemec related these and other ex- 
periences in a special assembly last Tuesday. 

The Nemec family had been touring Europe five weeks 
before entering Czechoslovakia. 

"There was evidence of Soviet influence in the other 
Soviet Block countries. The Red Star was everywhere, on 
buildings, newspapers, everything that was in the public 

"The stores were run by Russians, and the prices were 
very expensive." Miss N«mec continued, "They prefer 
American money so they can demand gold for it. They

'Comber Concepts 

Freedoms Not Realized 

"The Russians are todav in Czechoslovakia, tomorrow in 
Western Europe, and then the United Union (States) he- 
cause it sleeps like a mole and trusts the Russians like we 
once did." 

The above quote was made by a Czech Student at the 
height of the Russian Invasion of Czechoslovakia. 

We as Americans live with a "Don't give a damn" atti- 
tude. We have the freedoms yet we do not exercise them. 
We have the right to vote, yet we find this is too much bother 
for us to care. 

The Czechs fought tor what little freedom they had, yet 
we don't care enough for our fellow man. 

The Russians have stated that they will someday defeat 
as without firing a shot, that we will destroy ourselves. 

The American dream of a truly democratic society is 
presently nothing more than hypocrisy. 

Wometco Hailed 

The Wometco Company vending machines, in the short 
time in which they have been installed on campus, have 
illustrated to be a vast improvement over the previous con- 
tractor, the Prophet Company. 

We feel that Wometco's interest in keeping the machines 
clean, properly serviced and regularly filled, along with their 
placing of a list of offices on campus in which refunds would 
be made in case of malfunctions, has demonstrated a true 
desire to serve the students fully. 

Vending machines provide a great aid to all students 
and it is important that the best service be available. 

If this progress continues both the student body and 
Wometco stand to prosper, as a satisfied consumer is the key 
to profit.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO WITNESS not just good tal-

^wever, can claim among its student body a beauty as well 

a gifted vocalist. 

Sandra Thomas, PBJC sophomore, signs folk music, and 

ig it well she does. Appearing regularly at the Catalyst, a 

fcffeehouse opposite Florida Atlantic University, Sandra is 

e of the small coterie of folk enthusiasts who habit the 

talyst on Saturday evenings to perform to an informal 

ntinuously incoming-outgoing) group. 

Although all the performers are above average, Miss 
Thomas is easily the most polished. She seems to be sat- 
isfying her own need to sing, and yet her voice and style 
pervades the minds of the listeners. In one word, she 

Should the chance present itself, spend a relaxing (albeit 
ileasureable) evening some future Saturday night.

this happens (and no doubt it 
will) I'll know my position.

Eleven Freshmen applied for 
the two remaining Senate seats, 
which were vacant because of an 
inadequate number of candidates 
filing in the general elections. 

The two seats are to be filled 
by the Student Leadership & 
Service Board, subject to the ap- 
proval of the President of SGA 
and the Student Senate. 

The Senate hopefuls meet with 
the board on Monday to arrange 
interviews enabling the board to 
know the candidates on a more 
personal basis, thus making a de- 
cision that benefits the entire 
student body. 

Bruce Allen, Chairman, of 
the L & S Board, stated that 
he was very pleased that such 
a large number of freshmen 
had applied, however, he was 
confused as to why they had 
not decided to run. 
The eleven candidates applying 
are: Grace C. Carpenter, Chris- 

tine Cotter, Dennis B. DeFreitas, 
Stephanie Gillespie, Peter T. 
Kaighin, Michael Langton, Rosa- 
lind McManus, Miriam Rappo-

According to Registrar Laur-

weeks of the fall term, and do 

not have to report back until 
the first day of classes, January 

After the student is counseled 
for the winter term, a com-

available for bis inspection be-

Upon inspection he is then con-

Smith is the editor of the

tire schedule and return during 
the first week of Januray to re- 
schedule manually. 

The third alternative is that 
if he accepts the schedule in its 
entirety and prefers to pay his 
fees in advance, he returns to 
the Registrar's office where he 
receives his registration packet. 

He is then /eligible to pay his 
fees in the finance office at his 
own convenience, between De-

'Comber Concepts 


A Two Way Street 

The eleven o'clock activity period on Tuesdays and Thurs- 
days was specifically implemented for the benefit of the stu- 
dents, i j i j 

We feel there should be additional activities scheduled 
during this period for the enrichment of the PBJC student. 

However, this fs not a one way street. The student should 
take advantage of the opportunities offered to him. 

There should not have to be incentives to encourage the 
student to take interest in the product or service offered. 

Case in point: 'The People, Yes" by Carl Sandburg, pre- 
sented by the Reader's Theatre, offered free coffee as an in- 
centive to the students 

Should it take a free product or service to entice people 
to come for their own benefit? 

We feel that the program presented by the Reader's Thea- 
tre was beneficial and enlightening to the student. 

Now we suggest other activities, such as last years' col- 
loquiums presented by the Social Science Department. Stu- 
dent discussion groups concerning current topics, and resource 
speakers from the surrounding communities discussing topics 
that would aid in the enrichment of the students. 

Another Step Forward 

PBJC has taken another major step forward in up-dating 
iti already modern registration program. 

Registrar Laurence Maytleld announced Tuesday that 
students registering for the winter term may pay their fees 
in advance at the close of the fall term. 

Pre-payment provides the students with longer unin- 
terupted vacations and distributes the administration's work 
load involved with filing the fee receipts. 

PBJC is recognized nationwide as a leader in registration 
procedures. Pre-payment can only enhance this reputation.

Voice Of The Students 

Prexy's Motives Questioned 


In August, the SGA Cabinet 
passed a motion which grew out 
of an idea promoted by Presi- 
dent Smith. The motion states 
that SGA funds would not toe used 
to support student groups attend- 
ing conventions. 

At this same meeting, before 
the passage of the motion in ques- 
tion, it was pointed out by the 
advisor that if they should~adopt 
such a policy it must be applied 
to themselves. 

What happened as a result of 
this adopted policy' Circle K did 
not receive financial assistance 

for their convention m August, 
but Rodney Smith attended SGA 
convention last! week with full 
expenses paid! 

Was the SGA Senate duped into 
reversing a Cabinet decision at 
the convenience of Mr. Smith or 
did the Senate truly believe that 
the "no convention support" was 
a poor decision? 

It was obvious to all observers 
that Mr. Smith wanted to attend 
the SGA convention. Why did he 
not discuss this matter with the

"The Ultra-Brite contract is 
equal in monetary value to the 
second prize in the Stewart 
modeling pageant," stated Miss 
Tomlinson. "A contract for $25,- 
000 is awarded to the first place 
winner, $15,000 for second, and 
$10,000 for third place." 
Miss Tomlinson explained that 
a modeling contract with an 
agency puts the girl on a list for 
a "go see" when a position is 
to be filled. This does not neces- 
sarily mean she is chosen. 

Miss Tomlinson went on to say, 
"We feel that it can be a more 
valuable contract for Ann than 
the others since she will 'be doing 
television modeling— both live and 
on tape — and that's where the 
glamour— as well as the money 
— is." 

Miss Pickett, or Stuart as she 
is known professionally, is not 
new to modeling. She has been

agency locally both as a model 
and as an assistant to Mrs.

PBJC Students Win Respect 
At State FJCSGA Convention 

Last week's FJCSGA conven- 
tion in general was termed a suc- 
cess by SGA President Rodney 

He stated that the "delegates 
were genuinely concerned with 
the feelings of ^he students back 

Topics discussed included stu- 
dent rights, absenteeism policies, 
and statewide junior college foot- 

The PBJC delegation consist- 
ing of Dana Ferguson, Paul 
Buxton, Rodney Smith, Pat Bak- 
er and Elaine Beneson, accord- 
ing to Smith led many of the 
discussions and proposed much 
of the legislation on these topics. 
Smith said, "We established 
ourselves as level-headed leaders. 
The PBJC delegation took the 
stand against state wide football. 
They felt that there would not 
be enough of a following in the 
sport. Tuition would have to be 
hiked in order to provide the 
money for facilities. 

PBJC came up with some revo- 
lutionary ideas which, although 
defeated, have provoked con- 
siderable thought within other 

One of the ideas is that of 
rotation of FJCSGA officers. 
Each year one of the four dis- 
tricts would head FJCSGA. 

The advantage of this is that 
the officers would be able to keep 
in contact at all times.

7>youfs End Uncerf oinf y (Challenging The 'Combei 

For Cheerleader Aspirants I 

by Jacquie Boiling 

Comber Staff Writer 

For nine cheerleader "hope- 
fuls" the waiting period while the 
judges tallied the results seemed 
an eternity. 

Fleeting comments which band 
ied around the suspense filled 

room ranged from "Boy, did I 
goof up that cheer!" to "I wish 
that they would hurry up." 

Finally, Larry Krasulak, Chair- 
man of the Spirit and Traditions 
Board, under whose auspices the 
cheerleader selection is made, en- 
tered the North SAC chamber 

CHEERLEADERS-Pacer cheerleaders for the 1968-1969 
season are (from left to right); Debbie Strout, Sheri West, 
Kris Tedder, Gloria Delung, Betty Scherini, Jackie Weaver, 
and Chris Kiesling. 

Formal Induction Ends 
Phi Theta Kappa Pledging 

A hush settled over the stu- 
dents, as the first candle was 
lit to formally begin the solemn 
initiation of the new members of 
Phi Theta Kappa. 

Tuesday, October 15, the larg- 
est group of pledges in the his- 
tory of the honor fraternity at 
PBJC were accepted to serve 
to the best of their ability, the 
long-held traditions and ideals 
of PTK. 

President Lynn McGilvrey told 
of the history of PTK and in- 
formed members of their respon- 

The symbols of the golden key 
were explained and each mem- 
ber was called forward to sign 

the Phi Theta Kappa Member- 
ship Roll. 

Mr. Hendrix then spoke to the 
group as to what he felt they, 
the members, should accom- 
plish in the months to come. 
The organization is looking for- 
ward to a year of service to the 
campus, students, and commu- 
nity. Fellowship is the key word 
and the door to success is easily 
opened with it. 

and cut through the excitement 
with the long-awaited announce- 

"The 1988-69 Pacer cheerlead- 
ers are Gloria Delung, Chris 
Kiesling, Betty Schereni, Debbie 
Strout, Kris Tedder, Jackie 
Weaver and Sheri West." 
This disclosure culminated end- 
less hours of tiring practices for 
two of the aspirants. For the re- 
maining seven cheerleaders, the 
work has just begun. 

Tryouts ended the anxiety of 
"not knowing." At this time the 
nine girls were numbered and 
placed in groups of three. Each 
group entered South SAC where 
a panel of eight judges presided. 
First, each group did three 
cheers. After the three groups 
had finished performing the 
cheers, the judging went on to 

Although still in groups, each 
girl singularly executed the three 
most frequently used jumps of 
the former cheering squads. 

From then on, all attention 
should have focused on the 
judges. However, some of them 
were finding this a most difficult 
task so they requested another 
view of the candidates. 

Even after the repeat perform- 
ance, indecision still plagued 
the minds of the judges. An 
example of the judges' indeci- 
sion is mirrored in Coach Roy 
Bell's comment, "They all de- 
serve to be chosen." 

Yet, somehow a decision was 
reached and the new cheerlead- 
ers were selected. Following this 
the girls themselves voted and 
elected Kris Tedder and Jackie 
Weaver co-captains of the squad. 

Kris Tedder summed up the 
general feeling of the girls in the 
following manner: 

"At first I was stunned and 
then I felt all happy inside. After 
that, my one thought was to try 
to make the squad united instead 
of being individualistic. 

This weeks games are: University of Florida - 
North Carolina, Memphis State - Florida State, 
Virginia Tech - University of Miami, Alabama - 
Tennessee, Miami Dolphins - Cincinnati Bengals, 
Oakland Raiders - Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cow- 
boys - Minnesota Vikings, and Green Bay Packers -

PREPARATIONS BEGIN - Speech instructor, Arthur 
Musto offers advice to stage crew as work begins on the set 
of "Philadelphia Here I Come." 

by Nick Bougis 

'Comber Staff Writer 

With twenty days to go the 
Drama Department of PBJC 
along with a 14 member cast, 
four directors, and a very or- 
ganized technical group, is grad- 
ually bringing part of the village 
of Ballybeg, Ireland, to the PB- 
JC Auditorium. 

This is being done by way of 
the first play production this 
year, "Philadelphia, Here I 
Come!" which will run Nov. 14- 

Brian Friel's play is what we 
might term a "'now" play be- 
cause of the way it deals with 
the very present theme: the 
generation gap, in a most vivid 
and cognizant fashion. 


VOL. XXX - No. 8 

Lake Worth, Florida 

Friday, October 25, 1968 

The play is salted with poign- 
ant characters, peppered with 
comedy, oiled and vinegered with 
a lot of, "Why didn't I speak 
now's," and tossed together with 
various frustrations to create a 
Chef's salad that you won't 
want to munch on; but one in 
which you'll want to hunt for 
that splendid radish at the bot- 
tom of the bowl that adds that 
special color for the eye. 

The thirteen mortals, who grace 
the stage are a combination of 
people in all conditions of life: 
Those who understand, those who 
don't understand or have forgot- 
ten to understand, and those who 
should have understood. 

Greg Bean plays the lead in 
"Philadelphia . . ." as Gar 
O'Donnell. Gar has a frequent 
tendency, you might say, to 
step-out of himself in the form 
of John Schneider, who also 
plays the lead as Gar's alter-

FAU Strives For Closer Relationship 
As Deans Meet With Adminstration 

by Jim Fuller 

'Comber News Editor 

Florida Atlantic University and 
PBJC are striving for a closer 
relationship between the two in- 
stitutions, according to Dr. Char- 
les Atwell, Assistant Dean of In- 

Staff members and administra- 
tors from the two institutions 
met last Thursday to iron out 
problems and to have a chance 
to get to know their respective 

The departments represented 
by each campus are as follows: 
Vice President of Academic Af- 
fairs, Assistant Dean of Academic 
Affairs, Dean of Student Affairs, 
Deans of the Social Science De- 
partment, the Science Depart- 
ment, College of Education, Busi- 
ness Administration, Chairman of 
the English Departments, and a 
representative of the Department 
of Oceanic Engineering. 

Dr. Atwell stated, "A liaison 
has to be established from the 
top down." 

Considering the meeting highly 
organized, he went on to say that 
it proved FAU's interest in our 

At 9:30 the visiting representa- 
tives of FAU were greeted by Dr. 
Manor and oriented to the lay-out 
of our campus. Following this, a 
tour was conducted of the fa- 
cilities of the college, and then a 
lunch was served. 

From one until three o'clock 
the corresponding representa- 
tives of their departments or 
positions in administrative pro- 
cedure broke into their indivdu- 
al fields. This gave these indi- 
viduals a chance to get to 
know, on a personal basis, the 
people they had been dealing 

with through correspondence or 
over the phone. 

The meeting may be the first 
of an annual affair between the 
two campuses. 

FAU is highly dependent upon 

the junior colleges in the area for 

incoming students. 

A goal FAU is striving for is 
to get the college sophomore 
into the upper division school 
with as little problem as pos- 
sible, with an aim to establish 

a "four-year college program on 
two campuses." 

Plans are being made for PB- 
JC Day" late in November at 
FAU. The purpose of this would 
be to acquaint the students with 
FAU in a social atmosphere. 

Representing Irish-America: 
John Stankiewicz — Con; Alice 
Summers — Lizzy. Their American 
friend, Ben Burton, is played by 
Russ Bennett. 

Ruffian tigers and the lady: 
Tim Frisbie— Ned; Bob Evans— 
Joe;. Steve Searl— Tom, and Lau- 
ra Lee Athey who plays the lady, 
Katherine Doogan. 

Student directors for the play 
are: Janis Spadacene, Nicholas 
Bougis, and Lindy Zellner.

ecutive direction of Mr. Frank

Launching Tuesday's Assem- 
bly lecture from the objective 
that drugs are a medical and 
social problem, not a legal 
one, 'Dr. David E. Smith, Med- 
ical Director of the Haight- 
Ashbury Medical Clinic, ex- 
plored the psychedelic sub- 
culture of our society. 

Placing the major part of 
the blame for the hippie revolt 
on the society and parents of 
the rebelling teens, Smith 
cited today's casual attitude 
towards drugs and legislation 
which is interpreted by teens 
as the protection of the adults' 
alcohol and 'cigarette abuse, 
the most dangerous drug hab- 
its, as primary causes. 

Teens reacting against this 
society seek the truth about 
drugs through experimenta- 
tion. Those drugs most com- 
monly sought are LSD and 

Speed Methedrine is the dan- 
gerous drug. In it's first effect, 
a period of extreme violence 
proceeds a prolonged depres- 
sion that brings the user back 
to the drug for release. It's 
compulsive use leads to se- 
vere medical and psychiatric 

Contrasting LSD with Speed, 
Smith stated that "it's effect 

depends on the personality 
structure of the individual." 

LSD produces selective 
stimulation, generally in that 
area of the brain control- 
ling environmental response. 
"Each mind views life dif- 
ferently. Commonality of in- 
terpretation is due to the in- 
fluence of the culture." 

The danger in LSD lies in 
the failure of the user to re- 
spond to warning signals, in- 


Clarifying Statement 

ducing individuals to jump 
from heights or walk into 

Two additional points were 
clarified in the question-an- 
swer period following the lec- 
ture. In reply to a probe of 
LSD and birth defects, Smith 
said, "There is a possibility 
that LSD causes chromosomal 
breakdown, but this increases 
leukemia, not necessarily birth 
defects. The case is as yet un- 
proven." Nevertheless, he did 
not advocate anyone planning 
a family to risk the use of 

A question on marijuana 
opened an area which Dr. 
Smith had deliberately avoid- 

"Marijuana is used as a 
smokescreen to avoid view- 
ing the basic drug problem. 
In Haigist-Ashbury, mari- 
juana is a peripheral prob- 

Attacking alcohol as a more 
dangerous drug than mari- 
juana, Smith indicted the 
present laws governing mari- 
juana as "absurd and ridic- 
ulous." He felt that we must 
equate the two into their prop- 
per perspectives by increas- 
ing the laws covering alcohol 
and decreasing those on mari- 
juana, to eliminate the abuses 
of both.

Comber Concepts 

Better Relationship 

We applaud the new effort to form a better relationship 
between FAU and PBJC. A relationship of this nature is bene- 
ficial to the student of PBJC or any other junior college of 
this area. 

The logical place for the PBJC graduate to go is to Flor- 
ida Atlantic University, for the cut-off score for admittance 
to the University of Florida is spiraling upward year after 

This relationship should have been cultivated years ago. 

The University of South Florida and the University of 
West Florida have done more on our campus to welcome the 
graduate than our "sister" institution. 

FAU has not only done a poor job of enticing the gradu- 
ate of a junior college, but has done a poor job of keeping 
their own student body interested in their campus. 

A prime example of this is evident in that 1,300 pros- 
pective students for FAU, who had requested admission, did 
not show up for registration. 

We feel that FAU should look ahead to the future and 
involve themselves in a "selling" program to the junior col- 
leges in the area. 

Eases Draft Worries 

Solution: Draft Women 

by Bob Romani 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Every day, all across the na- 
tion, thousands of young men are 
biting off their fingernails and 
pulling out their hair as a result 
of constant worry over the draft. 
The problem is a difficult one 
but the solution quite simple. 

The advantages should be quite 
clear to every 1-A male regis- 

1. The psychological -aspect of 
warfare would be completely 
revolutionized. The enemy 
i would become entirely demor- 
alized if they were confronted 
with such famous units as the 
36-24-36th airborne brigade or 
possibly the 104th exposed calf- 
ery division. 

2. Our military budget could 
also be trimmed. With Twiggy 
designing the uniforms, we could 
save millions in that area alone. 

3. Communications would im- 
prove beyond expectations. A

within hours span the globe with- 
out the use of radio or any other

4. The food problem would be 
virtually eliminated. Every red

diet and a ration of salad and 
crackers would be more than 

5. Press coverage would be- 
come much more accurate. Male 
correspondents would be most 
eager to cover any troop move-

any presently m our arsenal That

Vofce Of The Students 

Mumbling Maddens Music Lover: 


During the latter part of the 
concert by the Miami-Dade South 
Stage Band, there was much 
mumbling and talking by mem- 
bers of our student body. 

It irritates me to know that 
some students of this institution 
haven't enough dignity to respect 
our guests. 

Not only did the students show 
disrespect to our guests but also 
to the students of this campus. 

I hope that on the occasion of 
another visit by members of an- 
other institution that our stu- 
dents will show that they respect 
and uphold the dignity of Palm

What Are They like Off-Stage? 
Talking With "The Association' 

by Lorraine Ljunggren 

'Comber Feature Editor 

The lights went up, the ap- 
plause began and it seemed as 
though it would never cease, as 
"The Association" began their 
concert, opening PBJC's 1968 Win- 
ter Frolics Friday evening, Oc- 
tober 18. 

The entire West Palm Beach 
Auditorium was filled with the 
echo of clapping hands each time 
the group finished one of their 
many famous songs— "Never My 
Love, Windy, Six-Man Band, or 
Cherish" (which almost brought 
the house down')- 

Who are they, these talent- 
ed young men who sing superb- 
ly as few are able? What are 
they like off-stage, away from 
the lights and the noise? What 
do they think about the future, 
about their organization, and 
about their success? 
These are questions answered 
by the men of "The Association" 
themselves— away from the lights 
and the noise. 

Who are they? They are: Ted 
Bluechell, Jr., drums; Brian 
Cole, bass; Russ Giguere, vocal; 
Terry Kirkman, vocal, recorder, 
horn, guitar; Larry Ramos, lead 
guitar, vocal; Jim Yester, rhythm 
guitar, vocal. The Six-Man Band- 

Off-stage they are easy-going 
young men with high ideals and 
a plan. A plan for success, which 
obviously works. 

Their plan? Working hard for 
those things they attain and 
which they think they deserve. 
For the future? "Anything 
goes," says Jim. "Who knows?" 
asks Russ. Films? "We're open 
to suggestions and interested." 
It is difficult to determine what 
age group makes up their largest 
following, perhaps early - college 
students. Whichever group it is, 
it is large 1 

The Association rarely uses 
special effects in recording. "We 
like the effect of being on stage,' 
states Jim. 

Out of all their songs on four 
albums, they have no favorites. 
"It. becomes too difficult when 
working with music everyday 
of one's life to choose a favor- 

Last year the group spent 250 
days on the road touring the 
country. They were in Europe 
two and one half months ago. 
Russ laughs and says the British 
tease them about being "a chorus 

of hell's angels (not on motor- 

Common interests? Yes, they 
have some. "We all enjoy food 
and drink (H20), and other 
things young men like." (No, they 

are not all eligible young bach- 
elors! ! )

group are married, Jim re-

Music Soothes 
Sifip Beasts 

The old adage that "music hath charm" is being applied 
by Coach Jim Tanner during his basketball practices. 

Music is taken from an album titled "Greatest Hits" fea- 
turing such singers as Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, and 
Dee Dee Sharp. 

Objectives of musical practices are to sharpen rhythm 
in general and to relax the players. They are not, however, 
used specifically for anything but drills such as layups, split 
post, the fast break, and also for calisthenics. 

According to Coach Tanner, "music makes the practices, 
and improves the players cadence and counting." The music 
used for example on lay-ups is "Sweet Georgia Brown," the 
theme from the Harlem Globetrotters. 

Melodious practices have been used previously. "We 
started about two years ago, working with it occasionally," 
Tanner said. "Last year we began using it regularly." 

When the music starts, a marked difference comes over 
the players, they seem to pick up the pace. 

Tanner also mentioned that the players like the musical 
drills and added, "a, 'highly skilled basketball player is the 
most graceful basketball player." 

Due to limitations in space. "Challenging the 
'Comber" was omitted from this issue. The column 
will return next week as Phi Da Di takes on the 
'Comber staff. 

Extramurals are on the increase in the Florida Junior 
College system. 

During November, five events have been slated includ- 
ing the Division IV Sports Day which is to be hosted by 

To date a total of 90 students are entered with entries 
still to arrive from some of the larger junior colleges in the 

All students who have not received letters in intercol- 
legiate sports are eligible for participation.

College Inn Dorm Closes; 
Students Left Out In The Cold 

('Comber Staff Photo by Ernest DeBakey) 

DORMS TO CLOSE - The College Inn has announced 
\thit as of December the dorms will be closed. Financial prob- 
lems were attributed to the closing. 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

Notice of the College Inn's 
closing has last week forced PB- 
JC to initiate an emergency hous- 
ing program to aid a number of 
students left without rooms. 

According to Dean of Women 
Elizabeth Davey, rtie reason for 
closing was due to problems with 
finances, in that the Inn was un- 
able to pay several outstanding

The 70 students living at the 
College Inn may be left with- 
out a place to stay next week. 

Tuesday afternoon the elec- 
tricity and water were turned 
off for three and a half hours 
because of the non-payment of 
a $2,126 electricity bill. 

Wednesday morning it was 
reported that the College Inn 
management was in the process 
of filing for bankruptcy. If

Classifying himself as a "Pro-

that Florida, for the first time 
in at least two decades, has had 
a deficit in its budget. 

" 'Progressive' is a word I'd

Senate Reform Needed 

A serious and highly formal assembly is fast being in- 
vaded by tones of informality and levity. 

The SGA Senate, because of a few senators who wish to 
comment sarcastically on the proceedings, is gradually los- 
ing its effect and solemnity. 

These remarks are irrelevant and in bad taste. 

Similar situations have occurred in the past, and they 
eventually resulted in complete disregard of the senate 

Senators have been given a trust by the student body. 
They should honor this responsibility by conducting them- 
selves in a mature manner. 

In Good Taste 

Campus Foods has shown a genuine interest in serving 
the students and faculty. 

Since the new food service corporation was awarded the 
cafeteria contract they have initiated a number of sorely need- 
ed improvements. 

Among these are: Tables cleaned periodically, menus for 
faculty members, the offering of specials and the publishing 
of these specials in the daily bulletin. 

Campus Foods' experience in catering to a commuter 
college has demonstrated its ability to cope with the prob- 
lems that prevailed at this institution. 

We believe that in turn the PBJC Community will reward 
the company for their "we care policy."

Voice Of The Students 

From Commendation To Criticism 


We must congratulate PBJC for 
allowing an exceptional man like 
Dr. Smith to speak on our cam- 

Undoubtedly a good portion of 
both faculty and administration 
had the hell shocked out of their 
conservatism as well as their 
antiquated and irrational estab- 
lishment views of drug abuse. 

Had the administration and fac- 
ulty been fully aware of Dr. 
Smith's "liberal view" he would 
not have been invited to speak. 

As it was, PBJC students and 
faculty members were given a 
chance to hear the drug dilema 
examined rationally and put in 
the correct perspective. 

It is certainly a shame that 20th 
Century thought has wormed its 
way through PBJC's infamous 
barriers of radical conservatism

Rumor has it that the Beautifi- 
cations Board is trying to secure 
a recreation room on campus. 
This room would contain pool ta- 
bles, ping-pong tables, card ta- 
bles, and various other equip 
ment proper in a college at- 
mosphere rec-room. 

As interested students, we hope 
that this' rumor becomes fact. We 
believe it would be a definite as- 
set to the "campus and to the 
students. Although the SAC 
Lounge offers television, chess 
and tables and couches, it does 
net, in our opinion, fulfill what 
a Student Activity Center should. 

We hope other students will 
voice their opinions, hopefully in 
favor of this "rumored" project. 
The Beautifications Board cannot 
do it alone If the students are 
interested, let them speak out.

Eighteen year old Jayne Gilruth is this week's 
Pacer Pride. She is a freshman from Ft. Lauder- 
dale who is majoring as an executive secretary 

Now, looking at Jayne would you believe that 
she collects cats, rabbits, snakes, and has a 
cockatoo? It's true. "I also like swimming, arch- 
ery, and billiards," she told us. We figure she's 
enough to bring the animal instincts out in anyone.

Social Science Deportment 
Compliments Chicago's Mayor 

by Sam Pepper 

'Cumber Editor-in-Chipf 

The Social Science Department 
in a recent meeting voted unani- 
mously to accept and send a reso- 
lution to Richard J. Daley, Mayor 
of Chicago, commending he and 
his police force on the job they 
performed during the Democratic 
National Convention 

The resolution stated that the 
Social Science Department 
wanted to express their appre- 
ciation of the fine job that Daley 
did in defense of "the social and 
political institutions" of Chicago 
against the "planned vicious at- 
tacks by violent anarchists." 
They also pointed out that the 
police did not resort to force until 
they were physically assaulted 

They also resolved that "While 
the right to dissent is inherent in 
our democratic system, the ap- 

proved form of dissent is not one 
of violence nor one of planned as- 
saults upon the forces of law and 
order who defend the democratic 

The Department concluded by 
saying, "The actions of Mayor 
Daley and his law enforcement 

agencies in preventing fruition 
of the major goal of the law- 
less elements, without the loss 
of life, are worthy of commen- 

In reply to the resolution, Mayor 
Daley stated, "Thanks" and 
signed his name (see post card). 

Grade Point Average Remains 
Major Concern Of Students 

by Robert Romani 

Comber Staff Writer 

One of the mam areas of con- 
cern to most college students is 
their grade point average (GPA) 
It is probably the most important 
set of numbers students receive 
throughout their college careers. 

The GPA represents academic 
achievement and it is here that 
prospective employers start their 
search for future employees. Com- 

petition has become so keen for 
job placement that the GPA has 
become a major device for limit- 
ing the field 

While most agree that the GPA 
is Important, there is a vast 
amount of controversy over the 
degree of emphasis that should 
be placed on the GPA. Many feel 
that its boundaries should be re- 
defined. A recent study conduct- 
ed at Columbia University shows 
no direct relationship between 

the college GPA and professional 

This study was very significant 
in proving a point but failed in 
offering any consolation to the 
student. The fact remains that 
the GPA is still the most impor- 
tant part of a college transcript. 
In order to keep astride with the 
competition, the student must re- 
sign to this fact until such time 
as the national educational sys- 
tem matures enough to relieve the

Many athletes at Palm Beach Junior College strive for 
the highest honor they can achieve. Like Walter Powers in 
Tennis, Bob McTammany in Golf, Earl Findley in Basket- 
ball, or Jimmy Cariseo in Baseball! All these athletes can 
strive for something already in their grasp; Success. 

The word "success" occupies a central place in the hier- 
archy of American values. This is especially true in the ath- 
letic world. 

We go out to win-for ourselves and team. A coach, seeks 
to build character but he is judged, most always, on his win- 
loss record. The team seeks the top of the standings; the 
players shoot for all-district and All-Ameriean ratings. 

In sports we are all conscious of the importance of the 
strong finish, the final quarter, the last inning, the 18th hole, 
the last few yards of a race. But the start in any sport is as 

We all want something, to win, to know success.

Instructor Shows Sailing Skill; 
Places Second In State Regatta 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comiber Sports Editor 

Mr. Houghton D. Wetherald, in- 
structor of History of Art Appre- 
ciation, placed'second in his class 
in the Florida State Sailing Cham- 
pionship recently in Miami. 

With his 16-foot Windmill, 
Weatherald received three sec- 
onds and two firsts out of the 
five heats, but was disqualified 
in the first heat because of lack 
o! equipment. This dimmed his 
chances for a first place cham- 

"Thirty per-cent of your rac- 
ing is psychological," comment- 
ed Wetherald, "when you have 
nothing to lose in a race like 
this, you just go all out. Psycho- 
logically we could have come 
out first, you really don't know, 
we could have finished last." 
His boat, a planeing hull sloop, 
is "very fast." They have been 
clocked at speeds up to 20 knots. 
The Windmill class is a Flor- 
ida-constructed craft with the 
lightest "possible hull. There are 
nearly 3,500 in use today. 

Wetherald has been sailing 
since he was 14 years old 
in Rhode Island. He attended 
Brown University and sailed on 
the college team. After gradu- 
ate school he taught four years 

BB Team Loses 
First Scrimmage 

With the knowledge of his 
team's first scrimmage behind

ing for the fifteen men that will

Tanner states, "We have 3 
returnees this season. Earl Find- 
ley, who lead District IV in 
rebounds last year, Warcecer 
Jakes, and Ward Freer, all of 
whom have experience." 

"The scrimmage was against a 
young men's team from the YM- 
CA. Although we lost 77-71, that 
doesn't tell the story," explained 

"We played, what I consider the 
tcp five, until they easily doubled 
the score. Then I replaced team 
after team with the remaining six- 
teen hopefuls never using the 
original five again." 

"I feel we will have a team 'ball 
club who will work well to- 
gether," added Tanner. "We still 
have a lot to do before the sea- 
son starts."

Welcome Extended To PBJC 

by Lorraine Ljunggren 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Florida Atlantic University and 
PBJC are in the process of de- 
veloping a closer relationship 
which will be more beneficial to 
students anticipating transfer to 
the Boca Raton institution. 

Opportunities are many, valu- 
able and near at hand. 

FAU Day, November 21, of- 
fers the PBJC student the 
chance to examine the program 
of studies and the campus of 
Florida Atlantic University. A 
free Bar-B-Q culminates an af- 
ternoon of tours at the Boca 
Raton campus. 
Also slated is a concert by the 
combined PBJC-FAU bands at 
4:30 p.m. 

Afternoon classes end at 2:20 
p.m. to afford PBJC students time 
to arrive on the FAU campus for 
the activities. 

Students and faculty are to 
meet in the Patio of the Resident 
Hall. A map will be provided in 
the office of Dean Paul Glynn, 
Coordinator of FAU Day and Di- 
rector of Student Personnel. His 
office is located at the west end 
of the old administration wing by 
the main office. 

The tours originate in the 
patio area and wind up at the 
Bar-B-Q In the recreational 

Students may sign up in Dean 
Glynn's office from 8 a.m. to 4 
p.m. Wednesday, November 12, 
through Friday at noon, Novem- 
ber 15. Admit slips will be issued 
for students to present to the fac- 
ulty at FAU upon their arrival 

for the program. This entitles 
the student to the free Bar-B-Q 

"We hope to have maximum 
participation in this program. If 
it is a success, we plan to pre- 
sent it on an annual basis," stated 
Dean Paul Glynn, Coordinator of 

FAU Day for PBJC.

Jamboree Weekend Begins 
With Sadie Hawkins Dance 

From "The Grass Roots" to 
Marryin' Sam is the outlook for 
this weekend's top flight enter- 
tainment being offered to PBJC 

Tonight the chase is on! Look 
out all you handsome, young, 
unattached males! If a girl nabs 
you at the Civinettes' Sadie Haw- 
kins Dance, you may reach the 
altar with the "Eighth Day" 
playing your wedding march. No 
guy is safe from a gal on campus 
from 8-12 p.m. 

Do not think that the fun 
ceases Friday night. A Bar-B-Q 
is being sponsored by the Civi- 
tans Saturday, November 9, at 
4:30 p.m., after which the Fac- 
ulty will take on the Pacers in 
"the" basketball game of the sea- 
son. Game time is 7:30 p.m. in 
the gym. 

When the last basket has been 
scored, the campus will still be 
alive with throngs of people. The 
Civitans are having a dance un- 
til midnight following the Faculty- 
Varsity game. 

Actions shifts to "The Four 
Tops" and their '69 Motown Re- 
view, with King Curtis and the 
King Pins and the Spinners, in 
concert at the West Palm Beach 
Auditorium Sunday night, Novem- 
ber 10, at 8 p.m. 

Tickets for the "Four Tops" 
show are available to PBJC stu- 
dents at a reduced rate in AD-05 
from 10-3 daily. The lower prices 
are made possible through the 
efforts of the SGA Spirit and Tra- 
ditions Board. 

"The Grass Roots" and the 
"Monopoly" bring to a climax 
the four-day festivities in a blan- 
ket concert in the PBJC gymna- 
sium Monday evening, 8-11 p.m. 
This nationally famous pop re- 
cording group is being presented 
to students free with an ID check 
at the door. 

The November 11 blanket con- 
cert will culminate the excellent 
roster of activities being present- 
ed this weekend. From Dogpatch 
to Lake Worth — Variety is the 
watchword for entertainment be- 
ing offered to PBJC this year. 

Greg, who starred in last years 
production of "David and Lisa", 
is to be seen as Gar's public life, 
the one everyone sees, while John, 
another veteran of the PBJC 
stage, can be viewed as Gar's 
private life, his conscience, or 
alter ego. 

Other members of the cast in- 
clude: Madge, the wise old house- 
keeper, played by Marlene Hayes; 
S. B. O'Donnell, Gar's father, by 
Ken Thompsan; Katherine Doog- 
an, played by Laura Lee Athey; 
Senator Doogan, Katherine's fa- 
ther, John Bragg; Lizzy, played 
by Alice Summers; Con, Lizzy's

Martin Tishner plays Master 
Boyle, the school master; Tim 
Frisfay, as Ned; Steve Searl as 
Tom; Bob Evans as Joe; and 
Nick Bougis as Canon; Mick 0'- 
Byrne, a priest. 

Student Directors for the play 
are Janice Spadacene, Lindy 
Zeilner, and Nick Bougis. 

Under the direction of Mr. 
Frank Leahy, the actors are pol- 
ishing their final characteriza- 
tions. "The more I've studied my 
part, the more it has frightened 
me. I can see some of the char- 
acteristics of S. B. (S. B. O'Don- 

nell, the protagionist's father) in 
myself," commented Ken Thomp- 

The technical effects, under the 
direction of Mr. Arthur Musto, 
are one to be marveled. 

The set is .unique in that it 
was designed and built entirely 
by the students. A tremendous 
amount of research was done 
as to what a typical Irish home 
Is to look like, even down to 
the grain in the plaster. 
The lighting posed a problem, 
for the angles of the set cast un- 
usually darker shadows than ever 
before experienced on the PBJC 

The theme of the play reflects 
what is happening today. It con- 
cerns the hardships the genera- 
tions have endured between each 
other. It pictures the differences 
between the old and new genera- 
dons — the generation gap.

Publications On Move 

The results of a recent survey, conducted by the Research 
Committee of the National Council of College Publications 
Advisers, revealed some interesting facts concerning the status 
of the college press now, compared with five years ago. 

Questionnaires were sent out to 253 colleges and univer- 
sities which have NCCPA members on their faculties. Seventy- 
five per cent of the newspaper questionnaires and 68 per cent 
of the yearbook questionnaires were returned; a response rare- 
ly achieved in questionnaire studies. 

The overall pattern is one of greater freedom, higher 
budgets, more advising time, better staffs, and greater ac- 
ceptance by both students and faculty at NCCPA-member 
schools. All schools did not report all of these gains, but 96 
per cent of the newspaper advisers and 94 per cent of the 
yearbook advisers reported gains in at least one of these areas. 

Eighty-seven per cent of newspaper advisers reported 
that their budgets are greater than they were five years ago. 

Newspaper advisers also feel that campus newspapers 
are better accepted by students than five years ago, and that 
staffs are better qualified than before. 

College publications is a growing field of responsible 
service to students and schools. Support them; they are the 
life-blood of America's universities and colleges.

Investigating the error, the 
Beachcomber contacted Floyd 
O. Becherer, member of the So- 
cial Science Department, who 
reportedly voted against the 

When asked why he had voted 
against the resolution, Becherer 
had this to offer, "As with the 
majority of the department, I 
have no sympathy with the pro- 
fessional agitators. But a number 
of young people involved were 
not members of this group of pro- 
fessional agitators or 'anarchists.' 
Some were simply peaceful pro 
testors or innccent by-standers." 

The history instructor continued 
by relating that it appeared some 
did attack the police with weap- 
ons. But the police also attacked 
innocent 'by-standers just watch- 
ing, not doing a thing. 

"I'm not sure what the 
'preponderance of evidence' 
proves." Continuing, he quar- 
^ried, "Does this preponderance 
of evidence reveal what the res- 
olution stated it revealed?" 
m./That being that the political 
invention was the target of 
anti-American forces dedicated 
to the destruction of our form 
of government) 

As I interpret it," Becher- 
er stated, "The resolution does 
not sufficiently differentiate be- 
tween the 'violent anarchists' and 
the much larger number of peo- 
ple present who were neither 
violent nor anarchists." 

In conclusion, Becherer said he 
would not want to condemn either 
side, but would be inclined to 
censure both.

I would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to call attention to a par- 
ticular annoyance that is happen- 
ing practically everywhere on 
campus, most of all in the cafe- 

This problem is quite trivial, 
but very annoying to me and 
several others to whom I speak. 

It has to do with people. gather- 
ing to converse, gossip, giggle, 
etc., in the middle of main walk- 
ways, aisles and especially in the 
middle of the stairways. 

It has now been weeks since 
school began, and I excused all 
this because of the clubs and 
their pledges, but now I am tired 
of saying, "Excuse me, may I 

In reply I constantly receive 
rude remarks, as if I should 
crawl over cafeteria tables or 
leap over the stair banister rails. 

I would not mind, nor do I deny 
them the right to mingle with 
their friends, if they would take 
the space out of the direct flow 
of traffic. 

I have encountered six or seven 
people in the mid aisle of the 
cafeteria when entire tables and 
their aisles were void of people. 
This affects me as selfish and 
extremely immature. 

I write this in hopes people 
will become considerate of others 
in this respect.

Today I attended the greatest 
thing that has taken place on 
PBJC's campus. The Afro-Amer- 
ican ODUM symbolized to me a 
Renaissance of not only better 
relationships between black and 
white but between all of man- 
kind. The room was electric with 
love and enthusiasm. 

Man is very undeveloped in 
many ways, but he is capable of 
manifesting all the fantastic and 
beautiful things which are within 
his ■soul. Emerson said, "Man is 

a god in ruins." I see no reason 
for man to be in ruins, he has 
the materials and the energy to 
build if -he wants, a campus, a 
city, a state, a nation, a world, 
a universe that is filled with per- 
fect order and love. 

When I am walking down the 
sidewalk and someone says hello 
to me, whether purple, pink, or 
indigo, I want that person to be 
saying hello because he feels it, 
not just a memorized form of 
politeness. This way of feeling, 
of living, of thinking cannot be 
taught to someone, it must come 
through higher understanding of 
life itself. To force yourself to 
be friendly, to do good deeds, is 
a fallacy in itself. The feeling 
must be there for it to be divine 

I only pray that there were:. 1 
ers that felt the way I did r' 
that meeting, and still fee; '.i; 
way, and will continue to * 
that way forever. It is not n : 
it is extremely hard to overcr 
past fears and apprehensions ? 
it must be done, and it cai5 
done through sincere love j 
time has arrived for us to i| 
off our masks. Halloween is:-' 
We need truth and honest;. :, 
most of all love. Every peiv*; 
this campus, whether he «■-; 
it or not, is capable of be: - ;) 
part of a Renaissance. If hi 
willing, then I will know we'\ 
reached the new frontier. •■

What's 'isname 

by Jon Miller 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Anyone reviewing films pub- 
lically or personally, analyzes 
from the moment of the first 
flickering light until the final note 
,of the soundtrack. 

It's not uncommon for such a 
person to habit sudden urges 
to pick up on a film— any film 
that will satiate said desire. 

Let me say here and now 
that having viewed "I'll Never 
Forget What's 'isname" under 
such circumstances, that this 
film may well be the sleeper 
of the year (be it that critics 
are allowed one sleeper 'favor- 
ite' each year). 
What's so good about "What's- 
'isname" is that it is the most 
pretentious unpretentious film of 
1968 and this is surely' not com- 
pletely contrary to the juxtapo- 
sition that director Michael Win- 
ner was attempting to create.

Credit, too, must go to the 
film's editor. For "What's 'is- 
name" being fast paced as dt 
is, never seems to be playing 
solely for the. eye as did "The 
Graduate." Tricks are at a 
minimum, with perhaps the ex- 
cusable exception of the inser- 
tion of Reed's winning commer- 
cial which is shown in total as 
the film itself. 

With excellent portrayals from 
the entire cast, it just could be 
that the one thing you'll not for-

annual Fall Sports Day. 

Five colleges participated in the Division 
IV competition which saw Miami-Dade North 
finish first with 69 points, only two points more 
than second place Miami-Dade South. The 
Pacers finished fourth with 53 points. 

A total of 228 participants from the five

had the largest turnout with 52 contestants. 

The only event PBJC won was the Men's

sixth out of the eight teams that 
participated last weekend in a 
golf tournament held at the Palm 
Beach National Country Club. 

Miami-Dade North, led by the 
United States Amateur Cham- 
pion, Bruce Fleisher, won the 
tournament, scoring 10 shots 
better than the second place 
team, Edison Junior College. 
For the second tournament in 
a row, Robbie Wilson of Edison 
has been the low scorer. His 
victory was sweetened by beating 
Fleisher. Wilson's two day total 

of 146 was only one stroke better 
than Fleisher's. 

The PBJC team was headed 
by Pete Balon who had a total 
of 159 for the 36 hole tourna-

Bobby McTammany (161), Steve 
Pearson (163), Jim Harmon

Palm Beach Junior College Pac- 
ers open their basketball season 
tonight against Florida Junior 

FJC is in their second season 
of play and already are one game 
into their 1968-69 season, losing 
to Drake College. 

With combinations of good 
speed and control they battled 
to a .500 season last year, and 

this year have most of their 
players returning. 

"It'll be a tough game," com- 
mented head coach Jim Tanner, 
"the first game is always 
tough, but we'll be ready." 

Starring for the Pacers is: Cen- 
ter, Warcecer Jakes, forwards, 
Earl Findley and Jimmy Jack- 
son, guards, Ward Freer and 
Charlie 'Dukes. 

The man to t«at is Findley, at 
6' 7", 175 pounds. Last year he 
was selected to the All-District 
IV team as he compiled an 18.0 

point per game average and 15.0 
rebounds per game, eighth in the 

Warcecer Jakes holds down the 
center spot. Last season the 6' 2", 
210 pounder finished in the top 20 
in rebounds with a 15.0 average. 
Ward Freer is the third let- 
terman to start Last season he 
saw limited action carrying a 
5.0 point average. 
Jimmy Jackson, 6' 3", 170 
pounds, from Boca Raton, is the 
first starting freshman.

heavily in the judging of the 
play," stated Mr. Arthur Musto. 
"I'd say the setting counts prob- 
ably as much as the acting, but 
the judges have the final say in 
that matter." 

"This is the first time in almost 
three years a 'box' type set has 
teen used," quoted Connie Mid- 
dleton, one of the chief artists 
cf the set design. "It looks like 
a real home, as if somebody real- 
ly lived here." 

The last time a box type set 
was used at PBJC was in "The 
Barrets of Wimpole Street," a 
play presented by the Drama De- 

"Many nights we were out 
here until midnight and even 
two o'clock in the morning put- 
ling finishing touches to a par- 
ticular set," stated Bobble 
Chuilli, another of the artists. 
Miss Chuilli continued, "It took 
us five days to develop a tech- 
nique on how to apply the paint 
so it looks like plaster." 

If "Philadelphia" goes to Wash- 
ington, the full set has to be taken 
down, shipped to Washington, and 
then reset. 

The Festival has put certain 
restrictions on the shipment of 
the sets. One— they must be 
shipped in three distinctive 
sized boxes, and two — they must 
be shipped by air. Both these 
restrictions figured in the de- 
signing of the set. 
Miss Middleton continued, 
"When we were building and 
painting the set, we tried pro- 
jecting ourselves in S. B.'s 
place." (S. B. is the lead char- 
acter's father, and according to 
the script, built the house him-

Food For Thought? 

Perhaps the way to a student's mind is through his stom- 
ach. At least this may be the idea behind the free barbeque 
being offered at Florida Atlantic University, Thursday, No- 
vember 21. 

The idea appears to be working, as indicated by the 
response of the students in picking up their admittance slips. 

A significant question to be pondered is whether the 
barbeque or the desire to learn is the major motivating factor 
involved in the number of responses made by the PBJC stu- 

If the major reason for making the trip is the desire to 
obtain information about Florida Atlantic and the courses 
offered then the trip should be rewarding, otherwise, it may 
only be filling.

Open JC Facilities 


Last Wednesday, myself and 
three others were thrown off the 
school tennis courts because we 
were not under the watchful eye 
of an instructor. 

What is this school coming to? 
Not only is it physically impos- 
sible to have a teacher come out 
there when you decide to use the 
facilities, 'hut it shows just how 
much trust the school officials 
have in the students. 

Each student at the beginning of 
the year pays a $15 activity fee 
which entitles one to the privi- 
lege to use campus facilities, 
such as the football field, volley- 
ball and tennis courts etc.

Grassroots Interview Prove: 
'No People Like Show People 

by Jacquie Boiling 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Every prospective actor who 
makes it to New York City has 
talent. Over five thousand of them 
wander around each day, and 
these five thousand were the 
best in their respective colleges 
and high schools. 

However, one former PBJC 
graduate, Bob Lydiard, must be 
a little more than the best. This 
versatile young man attributes 
his success in capturing the lead 

ance in "Dinny and the Witches," 
Bob was selected the 'Best Actor' 
of 1963-1964. His theatre work 
also included participation in pro- 
ductions with Musicarnival of 
West Palm Beach and Cleveland, 
Ohio, with the Royal Poinciana 
Playhouse, Palm Beach, and with 
the Coconut Grove Theatre, Mi- 
ami. He has also done work in

Perhaps the word most de- 
scriptive of the "Grassroots" off- 
stage is insane. 

Before their concert Monday 
night, the tend that recorded 
'Midnight Confessions' relieved 
the tension of touring by carrying 
«ach other piggy -back up the 
bleachers of the PBJC gym. Then 
they played a makeshift game of 
basketball on the basketball court. 
Afterwards, the "Grassroots" 

attitude concerning an inter- 
view was what could only be 

recounted as too cooperative. 

Rick, their happy and energetic 
(he demolished four drumsticks) 
drummer, still dripping wet from 
the performance, seized this writ- 
er's neatly prepared questions and 
proceeded to conduct the inter- 
view himself. 

"Hey, what's' this? It looks like 
a history exaim. Okay — (mock 
serious tone) 'Who are the groups 
that most influence you?' " 

Grassroots — "The PTA and 
the SPCA. Also the 4-H Club 
and the Future Farmers." 

Rick— "What's the worst thing 
about playing in a successful 

Grassroots— "Oh, probably try- 
ing to stay modest." 

Any hope of trying to extract 
a serious statement was wish- 
ful thinking by this time. Luck- 
ily, Rob, their bass player and 
lead vocalist, whose voice is 
heard on 'Live for Today,' 
'Things I Should Have Said,' 
and 'Where Were You When I 
Needed You,' had shared a few 
more sober moments with me 
before the show. 

'Comber— "Do you prefer any 
particular type of audience?" 

Rob— "Colleges are the best 
by far. The teeny-'boppers never 
listen. They just sit and scream." 

'Comber— Who writes your hat 
records, for instance, 'Midnight 

Rob— "None of our hits have 
been written by the group. Most 
of our writing appears on the 
albums. 'Midnight Confessions' 
was done by a group about six 
months ago. We liked the song, 
rearranged it, and released it. 
'Comber— "Do you prefer 
studio work or touring?" 

Rob— "Studio work is much 
better. On stage we only have 
four instruments to work with, 

and almost no control over the 
sound. Stage work is erratic- 
some nights everything will just 
_ click. Other nights everybody 
can be concentrating like mad 
and it will still sound lousy. 
Trouble is, we don't even know 
when it goes well. It can sound 
great where we are, but our man- 

ager can come up and say al; 
wards that the bass was so 
that you could hardly hear d 
thing else."

You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" 


role in the off Broadway musical 
production of "You're a Good 
Man, Charlie Brown" to several 

"I got the part simply be- 
cause I am Charlie Brown. I 
live the role off-stage as well 
as on-stage. It was simply a 
matter of luck and chance that 
I tried out." 
Old Lady Luck may have had 
a hand in his success, but one 
cannot overlook his tremendous 
talent and personality. While talk- 
ing with him during a recent stay 
in New York City with the Beach- 
comber, this writer was continual- 
ly amazed* with his dedication to 
his work. 

A great deal of Bob's success 
reverts back to PBJC, his old 
alma mater. 

He graduated from PBJC in 
1965 and from FAU in 1967. 
During his years here he ap- 
peared in the productions of 
"Dinny and the Witches," "Look 
Homeward Angel," "J. B.," 
"Carnival," and "Androcles 
and the Lion." 
For his outstanding perform- 

Theatre. During December he re- 
turned home to his "old stomp- 
ing grounds" to attend the Phi 
Rho Pi Christmas Reception. 

Being a past officer of Phi Rho 
Pi, Bob anxiously awaited seeing 
his old friends again. Never did 
he guess that it would be at this 
reception that he would learn 
about the Charlie Brown open- 

He went to New.-Yotk to try 
out and then returned to school 
at Wayne State. However, in 
August, he was called back to 
New York to step into the role 
of Charlie Brown with the New 
York cast after the original 
C. B. transferred to the Los 
Angeles production. 
This is where he is right now. 
The Charlie Brown cast is small 
(only six people). The theater 
(Theater 80 St. Marks) is small- 
it seats only 199. According to 
Bob the reasoning behind this is 

"The small intimate theater 
draws the audience into feeling 
part of the play." 

{^Jrlainald bu oLouide 

Custom Formals 

Designed for you 
By Appointment 


And this is very true. The in- 
timacy and size of the theater is 
overshadowed by the magnitude 
and versatility of the cast. 

The age span of the audience 
is anywhere from five to sev- 
enty. But, once the play begins, 
every person in the audience is 
transported back to his child- 
hood. One is a five year old 
once again. Puzzlement, longing 
and happiness combine to give 
the true picture of the typical 
day in the life of Charlie Brown. 
"During rehearsals and when 
we are off-stage waiting for our 
cues, we continually leaf through 
different books and papers con- 
taining Charlie Brown cartoons. 
That way we get a true insight 
into the characterizations and can 
react to the different situations 
just like Charlie, or Lucy, or 
Patty would." 

And they do. One of the most 
remarkable feats that the cast 
displays is the happy, bouncy 
walk of the normal five year old. 
The part of Charlie Brown re- 
quires Bob to stare blandly out 
into space much of the time. 
Charlie is simply a punching bag 
for Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, 
Snoopy and Patty to bang on. 
Bob, as Charlie, plays the straight 

"The hardest part of the role 
for me is to not use my face 
expressively. I was always a 
ham and I am used to mug- 

For those here who knew Bob, 
you know this is so. In talking 
with him, Bob constantly ex- 
pressed himself with dynamic 
facial expressions and frequent 
hand gestures. He was continual- 
ly transposing himself from one 
mood to another. 

His attire also portrayed his 
desire to remain in 'Charlie 
Brown character.' Dressed in 
dark slacks, a fall pullover sweat- 
er, and a dark green jacket, he 
seemed out of place in the wild- 
ly dressed New York crowd. 

When this writer asked him 
about this he replied, "I must 
keep the Charlie Brown image. 
That's why I don't have long 
hair, or wear anything but con- 
servative clothes." 

Most interesting was that the 
cast only sees the director once 
every three or four months. At 
all other times the stage mana- 
ger directs the cast

PBJC's CHARLIE BROWN - 'Comber reporter Jacquie 
Boiling, poses with graduate Rob Lydiard, star of the Off- 
Broadway play, "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown." 

"This helps bring us out and 
makes us work harder." 

It is necessary to prod a bit 
in order to get Bob to talk about 
himself. However, if one can get 
under the barrage of good com- 
ments he makes about "You're 
a Good Man Charlie Brown," he 
finds that Bob Lydiard is an ex- 
tremely talented young man. 

Besides acting, Bob can play 
the guitar and the concertina. 
And one cannot overlook his 
pure and pleasant singing 

Bob is very happy in New 
York, In fact he wants to re- 
main there for he feels that the 
New York audience will promote 
him. When asked whether he 
would stay in acting he replied, 
"If they want me." 

And apparently they do for he 
has tentative offers for TV com- 
mercials, a TV series, a movie 
and a soap opera. 

This success has not swelled 
Bob's head at all. He is still very 
much interested in promoting 
the theatre arts to everyone. 

On his days off, he does lec- 
ture tours at his own expense 
in high schools. On these tours, 
he talks to speech and drama 
students telling about the thea- 
tre and New York. 

Bob hasn't forgotten the West 
Palm Beach area or PBJC. The 
last thing he said was, "Remem- 
ber to go down to the beach and 
throw some sand into the wind 
for me." 

And for the PBJC Drama De- 
partment he has only the highest

If "a smile joins souls in mar- 
riage" as authoress Sandy Thom- 
as proclaims, then this sparkling 
and stunning brunette who was 
awarded the Miss Galleon 1969 
title must have a heart full of 
happiness for she is always smil- 

This dynamic beauty is inter- 
ested in everyone and everything, 
and her interests range from writ- 
ing and singing her own songs, to 
showing horses or to just loving 
mankind. And she carries out all 
she begins, with enthusiasm and 

Sandy won the Miss Galleon 
title on the basis of her beauty, 
poise and talent. For her tal- 
ent presentation, she sang one 
of several folk songs she has 

Sandy is not new to the per- 
forming arts. She began singing 
folk music about three years ago 
and since then has sung at folk 
festivals and in coffeehouses all 
over Florida as well as in Ohio 
and Kentucky. "Through my sing- 
ing, I try to help mankind to 
manifest his infinite possibilities." 
The vibrant brunette is an ac- 
tive member in the newly formed 
Southeast Florida Folk Guild 
which is trying to bring folk 
music into the area and help the 
"populus" to understand it. 

An accomplished musician, 
Sandy plays both the six and 
twelve string guitar as well as 
the sitar and the auto harp. 
She has cut several demon- 
stration records and this sum- 
mer she appeared on Kentucky 
television in a variety show. 

But this is only one of Sandy's 
many interests. Vying for her at- 

tention is also her horse "Ex- 
tra Dividend" on who Sandy rode 
to fame as the first equestrian 
rider in the nation to qualify for 
the 1967 Madison Square Garden 
Horse Show. 

Riding since she was eight, 
Sandy, on her carrot loving ani- 
mal, has also received such titles 
as Senior Saddle Seat Equestrian 
Champion of the Dade-Broward- 
Palm Beach County summer cir- 

Two American Horse Show As- 
sociation medals in Saddle Seat 
Equestrian can also fee added to 
her never-ending list of honors. 
Even though she has now stop- 
ped showing "Extra Dividend," 
she still takes time out every 
day to go down and ride him as 
well as give him a bunch of his 
adored carrots. 

Writing is one of English ma- 
jor Sandy's greatest loves. Be- 
sides writing her own songs and 
reams of poetry, she also has 
her own sack of Ben Franklin 
witticisms which include: "I de- 
spise my sensitivity and curse my 
apathy," and "To speak words 
that are felt is to see yourself on 

Miraculous as it may seem, 
Sandy is also involved In many 
PBJC activities. She is repre- 
senting PBJC at the Miami 
Dade Invitation Speech Tourna- 
ment in Miami this weekend. 
Besides Forensics, she is an 
active member of the Media, the 
Beachcomber, the Galleon, and 
Phi Theta Kappa. 

During her few spare moments, 

Sandy draws, paints, and models. 

When asked her reaction to 

being named Miss Galleon 

Sandy replied, "I was very 

surprised for my talent was 


folk singing and the term 'folk 
singer' is thought of in a very 
derogatory manner. I hope to 
be able to give folk singing a 
better image." 

One of Sandy's outstanding at- 
tributes is her love of mankind 
"I'm very interested in everybody 
and everything. In fact I try to 
keep smiling no matter what 
for it cheers up everyone aronra 
me as well as making me fed 

One of my greatest desires is 
to 'be an unprofessional profes- 
sional psychiatrist for everyone

problems that they want to tali

It is said that one of woman'i 
greatest qualities is her ability to 
be a good listener, and if this fe 
so, she could personify womar.

The Palm Beach Junior College 
golf team completed its fall tour- 
nament schedule last weekend 
with a 5th place finish in the Uni- 
versity of South Florida Tourna- 
ment in Tampa. 

Gulf Coast Junior College had 

■ the best score for the tournament. 

Their total was 5 shots better 

than the second place team of 

Miami-Dade North. 

Tom Petraglia of Miami-Dade 
North won his first college tour- 
nament with a fine 151 total for 
36 holes He was pressed hard 
fey Robbie Wilson of Edison Jun- 
ior College who finished one 
stroke back. 

Bobby McTammany of PBJC 
finished 5th in the tournament 
With a 156 total. His 76 on Sat- 

urday was the sscond lowest 
score of the day. The other 
PBJC scores were Jim Har- 
mon, 163, Steve Pearson 169, 
and Pete Baton 170. 
The course, carved out of 
swamps, was a beautiful but de- 
manding layout. One golf coach 
called it, "one of the hardest 
courses found anywhere." 

After the tournament, Golf 
Coach Ray Daugherty said "A 
disappointing fall session showed 
that the golf team needs more 
practice to get ready for next 
semester's schedule." 

He did sound optimistic when 
he said, "There is no one domi- 
nating team in our Conference. 
With a lot of practice we hope 
to finish near the top."

Boston Strangler 

by Jon Miller 

'Comber Staff Writer 

If you've seen and read all of 
the newspaper reports of the do- 
ings of the Boston strangler a 
few year's back, and if you've 
leafed through the best-seller of 
the same name by Gerald Franck, 
then you've pretty much experi- 
enced all that's left in the movie. 
Being that the strangler "did 
his thing" with 13 victims, critics 
would cry sacrilege if the pro- 
ducers were to omit any of the 
events as they occurred. But still, 
the fact remains that one must 
sit through 12 strangulations with 
little visible action or evidence 
that they indeed were as all vio^ 
lent as that. 

They've saved the thirteenth 
to dramatize on screen, and so 
it cannot help but be a highpoint 
in the film, as is the final clinic 
session when the strangler 
(Tony Curtis), a diagnosed 
schizophrenic, identifies his 
"other" self. 

Yet, in a film which possesses 
only two really captivating epi- 
sodes, why does there seem to be 
so much action, progression? 

Present in "The Boston Stran- 
gler" are all the tedious details 
that makes a film prove itself 
and without which this one surely 
would have. We have television 
evening news with a special re- 
port from John Cameron Sway- 
zee of the New York Parade for 
the three Mercury astronauts; 
the JFK funeral cortege and its 
depressing effect (affect?); the 
Boston Police Department's ex- 
haustive search. 

The latter is responsible in 
carrying the first two-thirds of 
the movie. The usual "rounding 
up" of sex offenders is here, 
but we're also given a touch 

of some more distasteful in- 
coverings as well as certain 
sardonic humor in others. 

The police department IS Henri 
Fonda. Being that as it msj 
"When Fonda is good he's verj 
very good, but . . ." and in tfe 
case Mr. Fonda appeared to h K 
reading his lines from a Wf { 
prompter or something such. Na 
a 'bad performance, mind vk| 
but only adequate. 

Tony Curtis isn't onscreen ic- 
til two -thirds of the film te 
elapsed. His role suffers for c 
The performance is fine eve 
though there is a great lack e' 
role integration into the film. 

"The Strangler" is the second 
major Hollywood release to 
make use of the multiple screen \ 
("The Thomas Crown Affair™ | 
pulled the first punch), and has, 
in fact, improved greatly on 
its predecessor. It is largely 
because of the simultaneous at 
tion that keeps the eye moving 
and prevents one from failing 

Of course, it wouldn't be p& 
sible in a 90-minute film to erf 
pose us to a- greater depth «}' 
knowledge of the strangler, Kr| 
wife, the detective, or his v»| 
tims; yet, there is no reason w 
develop compassion for any d| 
them if we have no idea of wte* 
is actually motivating them. 1ft 
aren't even given as much as m 
clue as to what compels the stntjj" 
gler to violate his victims. 

In spite of these shortcoming!] 
"The Strangler" succeeds in beM 
an underplayed film in the tratj 
ner of last year's "In The Hes 
of the Night." You sit down, learf 
back, and watch for an hour as[ 
a half, and that's what a gOKJ 
movie is for isn't it?

Chamber Theatre To Highlight Orwell's 1984 

A Chamber Theatre adaptation of 
George Orwell's novel "1984" introduces 
a new drama form to the PBJC stage. 

Utilizing the audience oriented narra- 
tive style of the Reader's Theatre and 
the stage focused action of a play, Cham- 
ber Theatre presents a unique impres- 

The major roles of the production are 
carried by the narrators, using a script 

and detailing to the audience the pro- 
gression of the story. 

Supplementing the narration are the 
"actor - interpreters," pantomining the 
story and speaking the dialogue. 

The narrators, here played by Chuck 
Mayes and Carol Gravlin, function from 
platforms on either side of the stage or 
outside the "action area." 

The actor-interpretors, featuring Mar- 
tin Tischler as Winston, Nick Bougis 

as O'Brien and Elizabeth Alexander as" 
Julia, concentrate their actions in the 
center stage, with simple stage prop- 

The omnipresent voice and influence 
of Big Brother emanates from off-«tage 
and is supplied by Richard Sheffield. 

A two member Chorus, that will also 
serve as individual characters as they 
appear, includes Linda Gold and Laura 


The three act drama of Winston's re- 
bellion against the thought and life con- 
trolling Party of a future world, is di- 
rected by Josh Crane, with Student Di- 
rector Chris Cotter and Assistant Di- 
rector Leslie Starwbaugh. 

The production is being presented on 
Dec. 13 - 14 at 8:14 in the Auditorium 
with no admission charge.

Failure To Comply With Contract 
Results In $500 Loss To Agent 

TO PERFORM-Famed Radio City Music Hall organist 
Richard Liebert is to perform an organ recital Monday, Dec. 
2, at 10:30 in the Auditorium. 

Famed Radio City Organist 
Featured In Next Assembly 

Nationally known radio and re- 
cording al-tist Richard Liebert is 
to present an organ recital here 
Monday, Dec. 2, at 10:30 a.m. in 
the Auditorim. 

The third and final program for 
the trimester is to consist of 
Classical and Pop music. 

Liebert first publicly appeared 
as an organist at the age of 
seven when he played the 
hymns for the Morning Chapel 

His first engagement was at 
Loew's Palace Theatre in Wash- 
ing D. C, where he served as 
a summer replacement. 

It was 'here that he heard of 
the scholarship award to be 
given by the Peabody Conserva- 
tory of Music in Baltimore. Lie- 
bert journeyed to the Conserva- 
tory and won a three year schol- 

As a theatre organist, Leibsrt 
was heard in movie palaces of 
Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, 
and finally became organist of 
the .Brooklyn Paramount Theatre. 

It was at this time that the 
Radio City Music Hall was 
nearing completion. In response 
to an invitation to compete for 
the position for chief organist, 
Leibert found himself in conten- 
tion with thirteen other appli- 

Leibert showed the versatility 
that he is known for by playing 
a medley of compositions ranging 
from Bach to Gershwin, for his 

The judges unanimously select- 
ed Leibert for the position which 
he has held to this day. 

He has appeared with the Buf- 
falo Symphony, Rochester Sym- 
phony, and many choral and mu- 
sical organizations. 

Some of his best selling record- 
ings are, "Liebert Takes a Holi- 
day," "Nightcap," and "Liebert 
Takes Broadway," all on the 
Westminster label. He has also 
recorded for RCA Victor and 
Camden' labels. 

The assembly schedule will be 
in effect for the day. 

Penalizing the agent of "The 
Grass Roots" for his alleged 
failure to fulfill all terms on a 
contract with PBJC, Student Gov- 
ernment has deducted $500 from 
the contracted amount for the 
rock group's Nov. 11 performance 

SGA Social Chairman Larry 
Krasulak said the amount was 
taken out of the group's $2,500 
paycheck after it allegedly failed 
to live up to a contract calling 
for a 90-minute performance. 

But Producer "Van" Tonkins, 
of the California-based Campus 
Concerts Ltd., retorted that "The 
Grass Roots" could not fulfill its 
contract because of "a lack of 
planning" on the part of PBJC. 
"There was room for mis- 
understanding on both sides," 
Tonkins said, "but I know they 
(PBJC) are in the wrong." 
Tonkins said he would absorb 
the $500 loss because he is "too 
big" to bother with it. 

"I can hold the school to every 
dime they owe us," Tonkins said, 
"but I'm too big to worry about 

The Grass Roots performed 
here in a joint concert with "The 
Monopoly," a West Palm Beach 
singing group. 

Krasulak said when "The Grass 
Roots" arrived on campus the 
group's road manager, Robert 
Tomasso, confronted him with a 
contract which stated the per- 
formance was to be "one show." 
He said no time specifications 
were made in Tomasso's contract, 
nor was it signed by any PBJC 

"My contract was as much of 
a surprise to him as his was to 
me," Krasulak said. 
"He (Tomasso) then told me his 
lead singer had a sore throat and 
asked for our cooperation and we 
finally agreed that they would 
perform for an hour and 15 or 20 
minutes," Krasulak said. 

But the group quit after per- 
forming for only an hour — 30 
minutes short of the 90 minutes 
called for in the contract. 

It wasn't until a few days later 
that a $2,000 check was mailed 
to Tonkins. 

Meanwhile, the producer had 
sent a telegram to PBJC Presi- 

dent Harold C. , Manor in which 
he said Krasulak had "created a 
most unnecessary and inconsider- 
ate situation between the Grass 
Roots Concert group, your cam- 
pus and my company." 

Tonkins stated in his message 
that the "artists . . . performed 
more than was necessary." 

He requested from Manor that 
"to everyone's mutual advantage 
you personally mail the contract 
price in full to my office within 
the next week." 

"Should it become necessary, 
we have methods to deal with 
situations like this." Tonkins 
said in the telegram. He did 
not indicate what the methods 
might be. 

But reached by phone later at 
his California home, Tonkins told 
the Beachcomber he had changed 
his mind and decided to accept 
the $2,000. 

"If I wanted to get tough," he 
said, "I could have gotten tough. 
I'm one of the higgest campus

Just The Facts, Ma'am 
. . . The Bare Facts 

Beachcomber reporters are indoctrinated to be ob- 
seryant at all times and are instructed to get all the 
facts— even the bare facts, 

One female Beachcomber reporter did just that. 
Enroute to the parking lot just south of the human- 
ities building, her reportorial eye for detail suddenly 
developed spasmatic tremors. 

Her first thought was that a male model had 
toppled from his pedestal and perhaps was out on a 
coffee break, for there in front of her was a smiling 
young man a la September Morn (that's nude). 

She immediately recognized this as a direct viola- 
tion of the PBJC Dress Code and dutifully reported it 
to Editor-in-Chief Sam Pepper. 

When questioned- as to whether or not the man was 
completely undraped she hesitantly replied "well he 
was wearing sun glasses." 

With continued disbelief the two journalists-to-be 
decided to investigate further. 

At this time the disrobed man was driving about 
the parking lot in a late model station wagon, 

Instructing her to keep an eye on him, Editor 
Pepper hastened to locate a photographer. The pho- 
tographer however, arrived too late to get the "ex- 

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Department, noti- 
fied of the incident, is investigating the case. 

The two reporters supplied the make, mr 
license number of the station wagon as well 
cal description of its driver.

And at the last senate meeting before press time, after 
three weeks of discussion, defeated a senate by-law re- 
stricting the number of meetings that an SGA Senator may 
miss before he is removed from office. 

The latter resolution is typical of the issues that have 
bogged down the functioning of the senate since the first 
meeting was held in early October. 

Procedural matters have been uppermost on the Senate's 
agenda. It is fine to undertake such steps but now that most 
of these matters are settled it is time that something is done 
that directly benefits the students of tin's institution. 

"Lough In" Takeoff Heads 
Third Coffeehouse Program 

"Laugh -Out," a premeditated 
happening, and "Strawberry 
Beatles Forever,' a lyric biogra- 
phy of the Beatles, are to be pre- 
sented Tuesday, December 3 at 
11 a.m. in the SAC Lounge. 

The third in a series of Read- 
ers' Theatre Coffeehouses is a

Voice Of The Readers 

Pro-Daley Resolution ' Amusing' 


I was amused to learn that the 
PBJC Sccial Science department 
has adopted a resolution condon- 
ing and even praising Mayor 
Richard Daley's police's actions 
during the Democratic National 

As a .reward for their valiant 
stand, the group of instructors 
received a "Thanks" card with a 
picture of the great political boss 
Daley himself! How proud must 
they feel! 

I must admit that 'I was not 
surprised to see such a resolu- 
tion emerging from a department 
that merely a year ago was on 
the brink of censuring the PBJC 
student newspaper because one of 
its student staff members dared 
write a satire not to their liking. 

But it did surprise me to hear 
that the statement supporting Da- 
ley's police's handling of the dem- 
onstrations was endorsed by all 
but one of the members of the 
Social Sciences Department. 

It was a sad day for PBJC 
when a department that should 
indeed be the forerunner in sup- 
porting social justice chose to 
support the extremist policies of 
the Chicago Police Department. 

Yes, there certainly were more 
than a few troublemakers (or 
anarchists, if you prefer) behind 
the Chicago incidents. It would 
be foolish to say that all those 
participating in ths demonstra- 
tions were citizens concerned 
about what they considered to be 
a faulty process at the Demo- 
cratic convention. 

Yes, some news media coverage 
of those incidents was not what 
could be described as impartial. 
It seems like the ability to report 
the news accurately and impar- 
tially could be impaired when 
your head has been cracked by 
a policeman's nightstick. 

But how can anyone brush 
aside the too-painfully-clear mem- 

ories of fallen young men and 
women being MACED and beaten 
time and again long after they 
had even ceased speaking. 

Much has been said and cer- 
tainly much more will be said 
about the Chicago incidents. 

Some, like the PBJC Social Sci- 
ence department, will label the 
police's actions as "worthy of 
commendation." Others prefer to 
call it one of the most shameful 
chapters in recent American his- 

But the events of those warm 

summer nights when tempers rar 
short and human patience was 
stretched to its utmost limit— and 
collapsed— were not new to me. ■ j 

I witnessed some time ago the 
same kind of zealous "law en- 
forcement" (or brutality — if yea 

But that was over six years ago 
in a small Caribbean counti) 
where ideas are no longer intel- 
lectually rebuked. 

They are killed.

" 'Philadelphia', will probably 
be one of the most convincing 
productions of the year," quote- 
unquote Nicholas Bougis, student 
director/character actor in the 
College Players' initial offering 
of the school year. 

Stated more than a week prior 
to the rise of the curtain on 
"Philadelphia, Here I Come," I 
don't think even Mr. Bougis could 
have foreseen the immense, in- 
deed intense, audience accept- 
ance of Brian Friei's successful 
New York play. 

For a three-act play to lay 
such a broad expanse from 
comedy to choked-emotion ren- 
.derings to the best of drama 
is an endorsement of the play- 
wright's capabilities. For all of 
this to succeed can only be 
an endorsement of the College 

and director Frank 


Mr. Leahy may have known 
that PBJC's first production 
would be reviewed for a berth in 
the American College Theatre 
Festival when "Philadelphia" was 
chosen. He may not have. On 
stage, however, it is evident that 
much tender loving care has been 
woven around the heart of this 
play — the heart being words. 

Words that waver at poignant 
reminiscing; words that resound 
with zealous anticipation; words 
that are cast and set befcre they 
can be molded; all are here, all

Problems Of larthly Living 
Topic Of Assembly Lecture 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Cnmher staff Writer 

We are living in a society of 
confusion and controversy leading 
to a multiple crisis of which we 
have suddenly become aware. 
This awareness springs from the 
space age technological revolu- 
tion which has caused us to ex- 
amine deeply our goals. 

These thoughts opened the lec- 
ture of Mr. Jules Bergman, ABC 
News Science Editor and prom- 
inent author, before an assembly 
audience November 14. Entitled 
"Conquering Space and Saving 
the Earth," the lecture was de- 
veloped to show the connection 
between the two. 

Digressing from his topic in 
the early part of the lecture, 
Bergman outlined the Apollo 
VIII manned moon shot, which 
he felt to be of major current 

The manned vessel, to be 
launched on December 21, will 
orbit the moon for 20 hours, skim- 
ming 9 miles above the surface 
and obtaining photographs not be- 
fore possible. The astronauts 
will get man's first view of the 
far side of the moon. 

Bergman applauded the Apollo 
VIII mission as a "monumental 

Reverting to his original topic, 
he attempted to answer the 
question "Why are we going?"' 
"When we land on the moon," 
he stated, "it will be a symbol 
of our technological excellence 
and an advance in our way of 
life. We are plagued now by 
the same shortsightedness that 
denied the value of the airplane 
of the Wright brothers." 

Moving from the field ot space 
travel and exploration. Jules 
Bergman tackled the problems of 
"saving the earth," emphasizing 
the importance of research in 
oceanography for our future well- 

"The starvation gap couid be 
filled by the ocean." he assured 
us. "We have ignored the inner 
space of the oceans too long. Less 
is known about the depths of the 
sea than the reaches of space." 

Yet the seas hold more promise 
of commercial value than any 
space projpet. The key to unlock 
ocean mining and farming will 
save the world. Man himself is 
that key and Bergman said he 
was certain that man will make 
use of it. 

Expanding his coverage on sav- 
ing the earth, Bergman entered 
a discussion of medicine todav 
saying the field suffers a criti- 
cal shortage of researchers, 
nurses and doctors. Without the' 
necessary researchers, no more 
breakthroughs will occur, Berg- 
man added. 

He said the United States 
needs more hospitals of a new 
kind, utilizing computers that 
can monitor patients full time. 
The emphasis in medicine is for 
better care for more patients 
at less cost, Bergman said. 

Striking into the area of avia- 
tion, Bergan touched on the need 
for a vertical and short landing 
craft and more efficient air traf- 
fic control to alleviate the crowd- 
ed sky conditions. He stated that 
military aircraft development is 
lagging behind that of the Rus- 
sians at this time. 

Effectively saving the earth 
must also include advances in 
transportation and a great Im- 
provement in housing to rid the 
U. S. of its "choking system of 
concrete and asphalt and the rat- 
infested hovels of the city siums." 

The year 2,000, Bergman 
claimed, holds unlimited promis? 
if we take hold now, following 
the words of the late Robert F. 
Kennedy, "Other men see things. 
as they are and ask why. I dream 
of things that ne\er were and 
ask why not." 

Charity Again The Recipient 
As Duncan Begins Book Reviews 

by Jacquie Boiling 

Comiier Stuff Writer 

The philanthropic Mr. Watson 
B. Duncan III, chairman of the 
communications department is 
making another contribution to 
charity with the initiation of a 
new series of benefit book re- 

For the second consecutive year 
a series of four book reviews is 
to be given by Duncan with ail 
the proceeds to go to the Osborne 
Day Care Center. 

Last year Duncan's programs 
raised $650.00 for the center, 
and if the Nov. 11 program was 
any indication, prospects are 
high that he will do much bet- 
ter this season, 

A packed house filled Lake 
Worth's Calvery United Church 
Chapel to hear his appraisal of 
the biographical novel "Pontius 
Pilate" by Paul Maier. 

The next review, scheduled for 
Dev. 9, is to evaluate the amus- 
ing satire "Heaven Help Us" by 
Herbert Tarr. This is a satirical 
study of some present day trends 

in U.S. society. 

"The Wine and the Music" by 
William E. Barrett is to be pre- 
sented on Jan 13. A navel with 
a psychological twist, this book 
delves Into the inner conflict of 
a Catholic pries: who must decide 
whether to denounce his iows 
and marry or give up his love. 

The series closes with » re- 
view on February W bat the 
subject for the lecture is still 
undecided. However, Dtwsws 
anticipates an appraisal of the 
"hit of the season."

Graffiti lis The Classroom? 

Robert Reisner, author of "Selected Seiawls from Bath- 
room Walls," is the newly-named instructor for a graduate 
course in the study of graffiti, to be offered at the New School 
for Social Research in New York City. 

Reisner says graffiti scrawls are a commentary on the 
modern world. Explaining that such "writings" are for humor's 
sake, patriotism, and anarchism are generally a reflection of 
witty, intelligent people. He's quick to confess, however, that 
much graffiti is merely obscene. (Those are the ones every- 
one has heard three times over!) 

In a concluding observation Reisner said, "Graffiti has 
literally changed de face of de nation." 

It'll been overheard that power is turning 
up the heat In a wax museum, 

Lingering in the lobby of the Auditorium during inter- 
mission of "Philadelphia, Here I Come," made me aware of 
yet another little publicized PBJC achievement. 

On the display boards is proof that the PBJC Drama 
Department must be doing something right. 

Evidenced in the display are former students of the 
department who have continued in the field and garnered 
a share of success. 
Two (Burt Reynolds and Monte Markham) have had their 
own TV series, "Hawk" and "The Last 100 Years," respec- 
tively; Reynolds having had roles in "Riverboat" and "Gun- 
smoke" besides. 

Representing PBJC m the Off Broadway play "You're A 
Good Man, Charlie Brown" are alumni Bob Lydiard and 
Patricia Britton. 

Add to this that "Philadelphia, Here I Come" is in 
contention for nationwide competition and honors, and 
one must surely honor the department under Watson B. 
Duncan HI, Frank Leahy, Josh Crane, and Arthur Musto 
as one of directorial progressiveness. 
With four graduates "making it," it wouldn't surprise to 
;ee more. 

Word has it that the definition of a loser 
Is a kissing bandit In a geriatric ward.

Religion, Old Or Hew; 
Which Will Prevail? 

("Comber Staff Puoto by Brnest DeBakey) & 

Pacer's Pride 

Star of stage and screen, Chris 
Hotter, this week's Pacers pride is 
a drama enthusiast's dream. A 
sophomore drama major, Chris is 
to appear in the production of 
"South Pacific" out at the old Music 
Carnival grounds on December 3, 
4, 5, 8, and 7. Studying keeps this 

charming coed pretty busy at PBJC. 
Several summers ago she went to 
Spain and made a pilot film which 
is coming to this area the last of 
December. All we can say is, "the 
drama department has done it

producers in the country." 

Tonkins said the conflict came 
about because two groups had 
been signed to appear at the con- 

He said it was "very unusual 
to have a dance and a concert 
at the same time." 
"I never heard of such a thing," 
he said. 

A check of the contracts with 
both "The Grass Roots" and "The 
Monopoly," however, revealed 

both groups had been booked for 
concert engagement only. 

Asked if the contract made 
any provisions as to the possible 
appearance of a second group 
or if he had discussed the mat- 
ter with Krasulak, Tonkins said 
he had not "even thought about 
such a possibility." 

"It was all Krasulak's mis- 
take," he said. "The kid is go- 
ing to school and what the hell 
does he know about producing?" 

"If I wanted to give it to my 
attorney and create problems I 
could do it," Tonkins added, "but 
it is good enough to leave the 
whole thing alone." 

He said tornado warnings in ef- 
fect in the area the evening of 
the concert had kept him from 
driving to PBJC from Coral 
Gables where he was staying at 
the time. 

"If I had been there perhaps 
things would have been differ- 
ent," he said. 

An off-campus group of Chris- 
tian college students were recent- 
ly involved in polling the students 
of PBJC as to how many students 
are searching for a more person- 
al religious faith. 

The group, who meet weekly 
to study and discuss the Bible, 
has found many stimulating and 
interesting answers to their stu- 
dent questionnaire. 

The results of the survey are 
as follows: 

Question 1— Do you think re- 
ligion is relevant to school life? 
Of the students taking the survey, 
64 per cent said yes, 30 percent 
said no, and six per cent didn't 

Question 2— Are you a member 
of a churoh or any other reli- 
gious group? 76 per cent stated 
they were a member of a re- 
ligious group or church, 20 per 
cent said they were not, and four 
per cent didn't answer. 

Question 3— What is the name of 
this group? This question was un- 
answered by 29 per cent of the 
students. The largest groups 
named were 23 per cent Catholic, 
18 per cent Baptist, and eight 
per cent Methodist There were 
also 15 other religions mentioned. 

Question 4— During the past 
year, have you attended religious 
services more than twice a 
month? 59 per cent had attended 
religious services more than 
twice a month, 38 per cent had 
not and three per cent didn't 

Question 5~ Do you feel what 
you have been taught in your 
place of worship has been a guide 
for your teen years? A place of 
worship has guided 73 per cent 
of the students, had not influenced 
22 per cent, and five per cent 
didn't answer. 

Question 6— Do you feel a high 
number of teens would feel the 
need for a more personal reli- 
gious faith? Of the students tak- 
ing the survey, 59 per cent said 
yes, 30 per cent no, and 11 per 
cent didn't answer. 

Question 7— What would you 
consider the reason for this need? 
There were as many answers as 
there were students polled.

The Pacers opened their 1968- 
69 cage season on a winning note 
Friday night as they defeated 
Florida Junior College 81-74 in 
an overtime thriller. 

At the end of regulation play, 
the two teams had played to a 
70-70 deadlock. In the ensuing 
five-minute overtime period, the 
Pacers outscored their Jackson- 
ville opponents 11-4 to gain the 

"Overall we did not play 
well," commented Coach Jim 
Tanner, "Our tempo was bad. 
You have to play at a certain 
pace, and ours was slow. We 
didn't take advantage of offen- 
sive and defensive mistakes 
made by the FJC." 
Tanner had previously stated 
that he expected the first game 
always to 'be a tough one since 
first-game jitters make it rough 
on the players and hurts their 

The PBJC team was led by 
6' 7" forward Earl Findley who 
popped in 22 points and grabbed 

21 rebounds. Jimmy Jacksoi 
gathered 22 rebounds to lead the 
Pacers and Jim Ley garnered 
16. Center Warcecer Jakes hauled 
down 11. 

The Pacers literally murdered 
FJC on the boards, as they cap- 
tured 85 rebounds to the Jack 
sonville squad's 30. 

Keeping in mind that it was tte 
Pacers first game of the season 
Tanner was not displeased witft 
his team's play. 

"Our rebounding was good 
but our shooting was not plea* 
ing. Even though our Held goal 
percentage was impressive, we 
missed several shots from the 
outside that should have bees 

Probably the thing that -hurt &■ 
Pacers the most was their flow 
play and ball handling. Ttiey con- 
tributed 30 turnovers whict 
proved to be costly. 

Tanner added "There was a 
per cent difference between our 
turnovers and FJC's turnover 
We gave them 11 more pointi 
on mishaps than, they gave us."

Pacers Gain Second Victory 
With 94-67 Win Over Drak 


. . . High Scorer 

by Gayle Murray 

'Couilu-r Stuff Wi-lU-r 

Sluggish playing and missing 
nearly one half of their outside 
shots did not stop the Pacers 
from beating Drake 94-67 on the 
Pacer's home court Wednesday 

The Pacers took control of the 
boards early in the game and con- 
tinued to out-rebound Drake 75- 
35. Earl Findley led the home 
team with 25 rebounds. 

Five of the Pacers hit in 
double figures with Earl Find- 
ley scoring 26 points. 

"We won convincingly but rag- 
gedly. Anytime you win, natural- 
ly you are pleased. Our team has 
good attitude and that's what's 

helping us along," stated Coa^ 
Tanner after the final buzzer 

When asked about the exeessM 
turnovers (he utilized every pj„ 
er) Tanner said, "There is no ^ 
cuse for that."

in 'the Valencia Tournament t 
Orlando, we should have al[ & 
mistakes ironed out 'before that'

And The Walls Came Tumbling Down 

CIVITAN PRESIDENT, Gary Angst, lowers the boom 
on the PBJC time capsule built by the Civitans. School offi- 
cials with the mutual consent of the Civitans decided that 
the capsule should be removed because of the large amount 
of water it had collected during the rainy season. 

Civitans Blame Administration 

Time Capsule Removed 


by Jim Fuller 

'Combpr News Editor 

Poor construction and a mistake 
in location lead to the eventual 
annihilation of the Givitan time 

Claude Edwards, Director of the 
Physical Plant, said the main rea- 
son for the removal of the time 
capsule was that it was subject to 
constant flooding. 

The water table in the area of 
the time capsule is approximately 
four feet. During a heavy rain the 
water level would be much 'higher. 
The capsule was not water- 
proofed -and it would flood. 

Edwards further stated that a 
possible solution to the problem 
of flooding would have been to 
have installed a metal tank, filled 
with nitrogen gas. This would 
have prevented any flooding and 
would have preserved any objects 
placed in the capsule. 

The time capsule in its pres- 
ent form served no purpose— 
"it became more or less an ob- 
ject," Edwards added. 

Another reason for the removal 
of the time capsule was its loca- 
tion. The present site is different 
from what was brought before the 

Edwards said the original lo- 
cation for the capsule was in an 
area just north of the Cafeteria. 
Jack Elliot a member of Civi- 
tans, contends that the proposed 
location in front of the Cafeteria 
was impossible because of under- 
ground pipes. 

Dr. Manor, on the other hand 
stated that the original plans 
called for an above-ground con- 

The capsule in its present lo- 

cation is in the direct path of a 
future building. 

The main contention on the 
part of the Civitans is that the 
administration knew that they 
were building the time capsule 
in its present location. 
Edwards said he was aware of 
the location of the capsule when 
construction was just beginning. 
Civitan president Gary Angst 
stated, "He could have stopped 
it right there." 

Edwards said he questioned the 
Civitans on why they were build- 
ing the time capsule in that area. 
He said the Civitans told him 
that they had gotten approval 
from a member of the adminis- 
tration and he let it go. 

When asked who got the ap- 
proval from the administration, 
Jack Elliot would not give the 
name of the individual, saying 
that he did not want to "get 
the guy in trouble." 
Plans are being made for a 
new time capsule. Edwards said 
that the school may defray part 
of the cost.

Pre-Poid Registration A First; 
Schedule Inspection Begins Monday 

by Craig Heyl 

'Comber Associate Editor 

For the first time a student at 
PBJC has the opportunity of pre- 
registering for his winter term 

This new program goes into op- 
eration Monday at 8:00 a.m. 

According to Registrar Laur- 
ence Mayfield, "under the new 
system of pre-paid registration, 
students may pay their fees dur- 
ing the last two weeks of the fall 
term, and do not have to report 
back until the first day of classes, 
Jan. 8, 1969." 

With counseling completed, 
duplicate computerized sched- 
ules are being made available 
to the student for his inspec- 
tion, beginning Monday, Dec. 9. 
These .schedules are located in 
the Guidence offices, located in 
the AD wing. 

The schedule is made available 
solely for the student's investiga- 
tion, and is not the student's 

After inspecting the schedule, 
the student has several alterna- 

First, he may accept the 
schedule as it stands. If he is 
prepared to pay his registra- 
tion fee at this time, he pro- 
ceeds to the registrar's office, 
located in the Main Office. 

There, he is given a registra- 
tion kit, consisting of fee card, 
student's copy of schedule, stu- 
dent ID, etc. 

From the registrar's office the 
student may then proceed to the 
finance office where he may pay 
the fee. 

Courses may not be added or 
dropped at this time, however 
they may be during the first 
week of classes, in January. 

This procedure does not have 
to be completed in a day's 

For example, a student may go 
to the Guidance Office Monday, 
Dec. 9, the first day the new 
service is offered. 

After inspecting the duplicate 
ccpy, he decides he will accept 
it. He may then not pick up the 
registration kit until Wednesday, 
Dec. 11. 

Christmas Concert Wednesday 

The Christmas Concert, featur- 
ing the College Singers and Con- 
cert Band, is scheduled for Dec. 
10 and 11. 

The first performance is plan- 
ned for a 10:30 a. m. assembly, 
Tuesday, Dec. 10 at the college 

The second, an evening per- 
formance at 8:00 p.m., will be 
staged at the Calvary Methodist 
Church on First Ave. North and 
Federal Hwy. in Lake Worth. 

The College Singers, directed 

by Donald Butterworth, are to 
perform the "Ceremony of Car- 
ols" by Benjamin and several 
other traditional Christmas num- 

The PBJC Concert Band, by 
Sy Pryweller, is to perform a 
new contemporary work "Litur- 
gual Music for Band" by Martin 
Mailman. The more traditional 
"Greensleeves" and Leroy An- 
derson's "Christmas Festival" 
are also scheduled for both 

The student may then have un- 
til Friday, Dec. 20, to pay his 
fees at the Finance Office. The 
day hours are from 8:00 a.m. un- 
til 3:00 p.m., and the evening 
hours are from 6:00 p.m. until 
9:00 p.m. 

Students who begin and do 
not complete these procedures, 
including the payment of the 
fees, must return all materials 
to the Registrar's Office by 
December 20, or their schedule 
will be cancelled. 

These students shall be required 
to plan a new schedule on their 

regular registration appointment 
posted on the main bulletin board. 

A second choice may be that the 
student finds it more convenient 
to register as scheduled during 
the week of January 2-7. 

The schedule that was made 
available to him in December 
shall remain the same whether 
or not he takes advantage of the 
pre-payment program. 

The final alternative for the stu- 
dent is that he may reject it en- 
tirely and return during the first 
week of January to register man- 

"Laff-Out" And "Beaf/es" 
Target Of Coffee House 

"Strawberry Beatles Forever" 
and "Laff-Out; A Premeditated 
Happening" concluded the Read- 
er's Theatre Coffee House produc- 
tions for the Fall term on Tues- 
day, December 3. 

"Strawberry Beatles Forever," 
written by John Schneider, who 
also directed it and read in the 
presentation, took a candid look 
at the Beatles today and tomor- 
row, taking off from the cover 
of their Sgt. Pepper's album. 

Interspersing the biographical 
sketch of their fame and prog- 
ress with frequent recitations 
of their more notable record- 
ings, the readers evoked laugh- 
ter and appreciative applause 
from an audience of about 200. 
The lyrics recited ranged from 
the ballad "Yesterday," by John 
Lennon and the tell-it-like-it-is 

"Nowhere Man" to "Glass Onion," 
a cut from their current album 
simply entitled "Beatles." 

The creative group was por- 
trayed as being transformed from 
their early appealing image into 
an experimental laboratory group 
with a future beyond imagina- 

The second presentation of 
Coffee House, "Laff-Out," fol- 
lowed a roving Blitzcomber re- 
porter to a party at the Lake 
Worth Shuffleboard Coliseum. 
Attempting to interview the 1928 
graduates of Sandspur U., she 
encountered comments ranging 
from "Confucious say, 'He who 
hesitates better have good alibi 
when he gets home,' " to "Sta- 
tistics prove that if jour parents 
didn't have any children, neither 
will you."

Middlemen Count 

A great American philosopher once stated, "Why bothei 
with the middleman when you can go to the top." 

SGA President Rodney Smith, has heeded this advice. 

In a letter to the District Board of Trustees, Smith re- 
quested that a date be set up for the presentation and dis- 
cussion of "grievances" that were indicated in a number of 
recent polls conducted by SGA 

It is not the function of the Board, nor is it the duty of 
the college president to review such matters. 

The proper channel to present the results of the polls 
would be the SGA Senate - the middleman. 

We also feel that the results should be made available 
for publication in the Beachcomber and should be posted on 
various campus bulletin boards. It appears that President 
Smith is the only one who knows what the poll really did 

No poll is private— it is the property of the students, as 
it is their right to be informed.

Hew Cafeteria Management Haifa 


For approximately four years 
the Prophet Company managed 
the cafeteria, much to the dis- 
pleasure of its customers 

This year it was felt by both 
the administration and the stu- 
dents that something had to be 

done about the poor service, poor 
food and the filth which were in- 
dicative of the cafeteria. 

Management of the cafeteria 
was placed on bid. The new 
contract was awarded to a com- 
pany that has a good reputa- 
tion on other campuses in the 




The service has improved, te 
food is of better quality and Km 
filth has 'been cleaned up. In !i- 
dition the manager of the pm

service to the student body, ft 
has requested that the SGA pr 
vide a committee 'to meet vf.

possible improvements which ii> 
students still feel are 'lacking. 

The first three meetings k \ 
many suggestions, which w 
carried out immediately. One 
these was the re-opening of t 
snack bar 

As far as the committee is <x>

'Comber Staff Write* 

"Shocking!" remarked one 
teacher upon leaving the lecture 

"I'm scandalized to think that 
someone like him is teaching Eng- 
lish" whispered another. 

These comments referred to 
Watson B. Duncan, Ill's speech 
entitled "Observations on ithe 
Teaching of English m the Jun- 
ior College" which was delivered 
at the 58th Annual Convention of 
the National Council of Teachers 
of English last weekend in Mil- 
waukee Wisconsin. 

Duncan, head of the English 
Department, was one of the 
guest speakers on the topic of 
literature programs in two-year 

Renowned for his loud and ring- 
ing praise of the "Big S" (as 
Duncan so fondly refers to Shake- 
speare), this instructor is con- 
tinually asserting in class that 
Shakespeare is often taught bad- 

Thus it was only natural that 
the theme of his talk was 'un- 
fortunately on the junior college 
level Shakespeare is badly 

"From my observations in 30 
years teaching (21 on the junior 
college level), I am rather cer- 
tain that Shakespeare in the 
two year college is in trouble. 

The too-frequently dull class- 
room dosages of Shakespeare are 
•unpalitable to th% student and fall 
far short of inspiration. 

Too many of our students say 
Shakespeare is a 'square.' We 
need more students to say Shake- 
speare is a 'cool cat' " 

This ability of being 'cool' and 
*hep' Duncan has acquired, for 
he continued along with his mod- 
ernistic approach by saying: 

"Teachers frequently waste 
time in class on unimportant sub- 
jects such as insects mentioned 

in Shakespeare's plays, and how 
many kids Lady Capulet had. 
Who cares anyway?" 

The junior college student 
(sometimes having his last and 
only contact with the literary 
genius), could care less about 
such trivialities. 
Duncan then issued a request 
to the English teachers of Amer- 

"My plea to you is that we in 
the two-year college not bury 
Shakespeare under yards of gib- 
berish and drive him away from 
the many hundreds of students 
who are perfectly capable of en- 
joying him." 

His proposed solution to this 
problem is to get away from 

the scholarly approach of study. 

Many of the students were 
shocked by this break from the 
traditional teaching of Shake- 
peare. Yet this is the method 
which Duncan employs and proof 
of his success is the high enroll- 
ment in his classes 

He also attended several sem- 
inars on the preparation and 
methods applied by college Eng- 
lish teachers 

The 'Duncans made it home 
safely and didn't have to make 
an unexpected stop in Cuba. 
Thinking back upon the possibil- 
ity of a surprise visit to the south- 
ern island, Duncan commented 
that "he hadn't planned on 
clothes for an extra day."

Miami Victory Incentive; 
Pacers To Finish Strong 

Coach Jim Tanner may sound 
a bit optimistic when he says the 
Pacers will have a 5-3 record be- 
fore the Christmas 'break, but the 
Pacers have finally smoothed out

that basketball teams seem to

game of the year with Drake, 
who they defeated 94-67 three 
weeks ago. 

Asked if there was any set 
game plan Tanner replied, "We 

need to move the ball around, 
take good shots, and make care- 
ful passes. At the start we have 
been rushing our play, which re- 
sulted in so many mishaps." 

Tanner also feels that the vic- 
tory over the University of Mi- 
ami Frosh is a turning point 
for his team. "After the loss 
to the Florida State Frosh, 
which is one of the best teams 
in Florida, we needed the vic-

Basis Support On Recent Petition 

SGA Prexy Favors Changes In Dress Code 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

SGA President Rodney Smith, 
in a written statement to the 
Beachcomber, has announced his 
support of a recent petition ad- 
vocating changes in the present 
PBJC dress code. 

"I must endorse this advocacy 
of change." Smith pointed out, 
"There has never, in my recollec- 
tion, been a more significant 
gathering of student opinion, as 
was shown by these students." 
The petition, which is primar- 
ily the work of sophomores Bob 
Justice, Larry Sipprell, Bill 
Donahue and Joel Raslmowicz, 
basically states that since 
"length of hair, sideburns and 
beards, .shorts and slacks for 
girls do not affect one's learn- 
ing capacity they should not be 
ruled against." 

The document was handed to 
the executive department of SGA 

with the request that the student 
senate take immediate action 

"The students have united in 
their appeal to SGA," Smith went 
on, "And I am sworn and glad 
to do everything I can to elim- 
inate the problems that now 

Signatures attached to the peti- 
tion total 1,100, however, SGA 
Secretary Marilyn Meyers said 
that close to 500 names could not 
be verified due to illegible hand- 

There are 3,400 day students 
enrolled and 1,600 night, which 
combined is a total of more 
than 5,000 students. The peti- 
tion was circulated during both 
day and night sessions. 
"We are now giving SGA a 
chance to prove itself," stated 
Justice,- "we have united the stu- 
dents behind you. Now the SGA 
can actually do something for the 


Justice also charged that it is 
the Beachcomber's duty to back 
the students by supporting the pe- 

During Thursday's senate meet- 
ing, Smith in his President's Re- 

port informed senators that he 
has written a resolution, which 
he plans to submit to the senate 
during first meeting of the winter 

He did, however, read to the 
senate a rough draft of the res- 

olution he plans to present at 
its next meeting. 

The resolution centers around 
the TormuTation of a committee 
comprised of faculty and student 
senators that would have the pow-

Fall Enrollment - 5279; 
Females Still A Minority 

l-R Awards Dance Seen As A First; 
Civifan Russ Black Selected King 

A new innovation in I-R awards 
presentations was tested Wednes- 
day night and according to Di- 
rector Roy Bell, "it was found 
to be a success." 

The I-R board presented their 
awards in the form of a dance, 
which was held in the SAC lounge. 

The dance lasted from 8 p.m. 
until 11 p.m. Music was provided 
by the Carnival. 

The I-R board crowned Russ 

Black of Civitans intramural 

king for the fall term. The se- 

lection of the king was based 
on overall-participation in intra- 

Awards were presented for the 
following sports: flag tag football, 
volleyball (men's and women's 
and co-ed), men's and women's 
golf, men's and women's bowling, 
Men's tennis, and men's and 
women's table tennis. 

Plans are being made for a 
similar type of awards presenta- 
tion in which an intramural queen 
will be crowned.

Males outnumber females on 
our campus by only 399 stu- 

This was announced Tuesday, 
Dec. 10, in the official Report 
of Enrollment completed for the 
Division of Community Junior 
Colleges. Also reported was the 
total enrollment for the fall 
term of the academic year of 

The report, computed by 
Miss Edna D. Wilson, Admin- 
istrative Assistant to the Reg- 
istrar, showed that the total 
number of males enrolled was 
2,839, while the female's total 
was 2,440. 

The enrollment report was 
broken down into several sec- 
tions, the first being the fall 
enrollment of on-campus stu- 
dents by county. 

Palm Beach County led with 
4,534 students attending this in- 

stitution with Broward county 
second with 304. 

Dade recorded 37, Hendry 21, 
Orange 19, and Duval 15, while 
Martin had 14, and Brevard 11. 
Twenty-three other counties had 
ten or less students enrolled. 

The total enrollment of Flor- 
ida students attending PBJC, 
was 5,038. 

Tne second part concerned 
itself with the enrollment of on- 
campus students by state and 
other geographical areas. 

Florida, of course, led with 
5,038. New York state contrib- 
uted 36 students while New Jer- 
sey 'had 24. 

Thirty other states contributed 
to bring the U. S. total to 5,261. 
An interesting fact was that 
Canada offered eight of her 
students and ten other foreign 
countries offered their's to 
make the grand total 5,279. 
One thousand six hundred and 
thirty-eight of the total number 

of Florida students are enrolled 
for the first time in college. 

The grand total for the first 
time in college, made up by 
state and other geographical 
areas was 1,729. 

Additional breakdowns of the' 
report were in the male and fe- 
male categories. 

As stated before, of the 5,279 
total for on-campus enroll- 
ment, 2,839 were male and 
2,440 were female. 
Nine hundred and one males 
and eight hundred and twenty- 
eight females made up the total 
of 1,729 for the flrst-time-in- 
college enrollment 

The enrollment in terminal 
courses, curriculums of at least 
one year but less than four, wa^ 
1,364. This included all the stu- 
dents in the total enrollment who 
are enrolled in a terminal or 
technical program. 

There were 690 males and 674 
females enrolled in this type of

A Need For Caution 

Student Government President Rodney Smith is in the 
process of presenting a resolution to the SGA Senate advo- 
cating that certain changes be made in the present PBJC 
personal appearance code. 

We feel that some changes may prove to be merited, 
however, we urge that not only senators but the entire stu- 
dent body exercise extreme caution and view these matters 
from all angles before reaching a conclusion. 

Questions that should be considered before formulating 
a decision include: 

.... Will this change in dress affect the image and repu- 
tation that this college enjoys, do to its present standards of 

. . . Will the community view this institution with same 
respect it has had for it in the past? 

.... Does 1,100 students out of a total enrollment of 
5,000 constitute a majority? 

Will this college be controlled by a minority such 
as the case of Berkeley and San Francisco State? 

. . . Will financial aids and donations be curtailed be- 
cause of a change in our physical image? 

. . Since it is proven that our present dress code is a 
benefit to us, in what ways will a change aid us? 

. . . Does the petition that was circulated leally prove 
that students approve of all the changes it is advocating? 

. Is this petition asking for a change or is it actually 
proposing the abolishment of a dress code? 

.... If changes are made how many people will actually 
take advantage of these changes? 

The world's greatest decisions have evolved from careful 
and thorough deliberation. Become involved with the issue 
before you attempt to judge its validity. 

Students Are Important 

The Finance Department has vetoed a proposal suggested 
by members of the administration that would allow students 
to drop a class and still be able to take part in the pre-payment 
of fees. 

Finance contests that a class drop could change a stu- 
dent's full-time status to part-time thus lowering his tuition 

A compromise was then reached which would allow a 
student to drop a class as long as it did not affect his full 
time status. 

This proposition was also vetoed by the Finance Depart- 

By turning this down, they have committed a great dis- 
service to the students of this institution. 

Students who have decided definitely on dropping a class 
are now inconvenienced by being required to return during va- 
cation to register. 

If this proposal would have been accepted it would have 
also been an aid to students who have to schedule manually 
in January. Classes that are dropped early create openings 
that may not otherwise be available to the student scheduling 
the week before classes begin. 

We ieel that the Finance Department heads should re- 
validate their stand on this issue before registration begins 
next teim. it's bine that the Finance Department realizes 
rliar then existence depends upon students and not vice versa. 

Voice Of The Readers 

Present Dress Code Is Illogical 


In the amazingly short period 
of three days, a group of students 
has collected a list of over 1,100 
signatures on a petition concern- 
ing the present dress code now 
in force at Palm Beach Junior 

The petition suggests certain 
changes in the code which, if 
passed in the Senate, would al- 
low a student to determine, on 
his own, what is fashionable, 
tasteful, and appropriate as to 
his or her personal appearance 
on campus. 

There are some few parties 
who need to be informed as to the 
ramifications of this proposed 
change in the present policy. 

To the faculty: 

These changes will not result in 
a completely chaotic swarm of 
proposed changes in other areas 
of school policy. 

Poor Appearance Code 
Gives Reader A Cause 


Since I am an apathetic stu- 
dent, there exists an apparent in- 
congruity in my own involvement 
in the issue concerning the 
abolishment of PBJC's "dress 

From an objective viewpoint, 
surely anything that occurs on 
our fine campus IS TRITE. 

In face of national and world 
problems, very little of earth 
shaking nature ever erupts from 
our out-of-date institution. 

On a personal or subjective 
level, however, a college such as 
ours, which tends to work at the 
cross-purpose of TRUE education 
through many factors — including 
the enforcement of a "dress 
code," is simply revolting. 

Its very nature demands action 
and change from the conscien- 
tious student. 

I have become involved because 
I attend a college which confuses 
the ability to learn with an indi- 
vidual's freedom of choice. 

PBJC's administration has at- 
tempted to impose the morality 
and standards of years ago upon 
an educational institution that ex- 
ists in 1968. 

Well, they have apparently 
achieved what was wanted; an 
apathetic student body, a token 
student 'government representing 
only a few, and a generally stag- 
nant state of affairs on campus. 

Presently there is a petition 
containing more than 1,100 signa- 
tures before the SGA. It is a pe- 
tition calling for the change in 
the rather notorious "dress code" 
and will serve a dual purpose. 

First, it will test the Student 
Government to see if it represents 
the students or the administra- 

Secondly, the student body will 
finally know whether or not ac- 
tion is resultant of "going through 
the right channels" (as is urged 
BY the administration), or if 
maybe apathy isn't truly justifi- 

L. Sippreil 

To those students who are not 
in sympathy with the proposed 

This petition falls under the 
heading of freedom of expression, 
or, "I do not agree with what you 
have to say, but I will defend to 
the death your right to say it.' 

To the students in favor of this 

You are the ones who realize 
that changes in the dress code 



will not result in. changes in & 
minds of the students, and fit 
these changes, in most cases, vZ 
not be carried to -fee extreme. 
With sq many students in fava 
of the changes in the dress cafe 
it is inconceivable that m 
changes he turned down wbotj 
sale by either the student or f« 
ulty senates.

K-ettes, Circle K 
Honor Migrant 

A child's laughter is a welcome 
sound to anyone's ears, but this 
laughter holds a special connota- 
tion in the holiday season which 
is now approaching. 

However, many children will 
not be laughing this year. 

But with the help of the K-ette 
Club a little joy may be brought 
to the migrant children of Palm 
Beach County. 

Each year the girls are host- 
esses for a party to 'benefit those 
less fortunate than themselves. 

The First Baptist Church of 
Hypoluxo is to host this annual 
party for thirty -five children, 
ranging in age from 6 through 

The children will decorate their 
own tree with the help of the 
K-ettes and the men of Circle K. 
Decorations are provided and the 
tree will take on whatever shape 
the youngsters desire. 

No Christmas party is official 
without hte visit of Old Saint 
Nick, and the Circle K. Club has 
assured he will arrive. 

The sound of children's laughter 
is only the outward expression of 
joy, but the enjoyment of a bit 
of Christmas these less fortunate 

children might not otherwise fcfj 
had can only be expressed f 
their own hearts. j

Drake's Revenge 

Fouls Lead To Defeat 

Drake got revenge on their 
home court for an earlier loss 
by defeating the Pacers 85-80 last 

The game was riddled with 
fouls and floor mistakes. 

PBJC jumped into an early 5-0 
Jead and then tost it on one buck- 
et by Drake and four foul shots. 

Remarkably, whenever ifee Pac- 
ers got within five points of 
Drake, they were called for a 
foul or a violation. 

The Pacers had the most tech- 
nical fouls called on them in their 
bask etball career. 

Receiving the technicals were 
Jim Ley, for raising his hand af- 
ter a foul had been called on Earl 
Findley, Jim Jackson, for raising 
two hands when a foul was called 
on him and Herman Jordan for 

Coach Tanner was confined to 
his bench early in the first quar- 
ter, and, in front of the crowd, 
was ordered to sit and not get up 

Laier in the game, while the 
Pacers were rooting for the team 
and upset with the official's calls, 
the official came over to the Pac- 
er bench and stated, "If you keep 
on yelling, I'll clear the bench 
and then you will have something 
to yell about." 

Greg Duda led the scoring for 
Drake with forty points. 

Duda also made a five point 
play which is rare in basketball. 

He made a layup, was fouled 
after the shot, received a one-on- 

one situation, and a technical foul 

He made all three foul shots, 
received the ball in bounds, and 
then- proceeded to make another 
bucket which gave Drake a sev- 
en point lead. 

The Pacers, behind Earl Find- 
ley with twenty-two points and 
thirteen rebounds, and Jim Ley 
with twenty points and twelve 
rebounds, could not catch the 
Drake Demons after the opening 

Earl Findley, Jim Jackson, and 
Charlie "Butch" Dukes all fouled 
out, while Jim Ley and several 
others had four fouls on them 
early in the second half. 

Palm Beach will open its drive 
for the Division IV Championship 
Saturday night against last years 
champion, Miami Dade-North.

JC Football Proves Impractical 
Finances Sited As Main Reason 

Florida is a fast-growing state 
east of the Mississippi River, and 
soon the four major four-year in- 
stitutions in Florida will be hard- 
pressed and overloaded. 

Football is the fastest-growing 
and most exciting game today. 

Smith agrees that in maybe five 
years PBJC will have football, 
and a league comprised of 10 or 
more other junior colleges. Surely 
our athletic department is all for 
it, but neither our budget nor any 
other JC's budget is ready for a 
football program at this time.

A goal line stand by a majority 
of Florida, junior colleges has 
halted the progress of a recent 
petition concerning junior college 

The petition, drafted by Miami 
Dade North, (which has an en- 
rollment of 20,000) dealt with the 
feasability of including football 
in the FJCC program. 

The issue was heavily defeated. 

According to Athletic Director, 
Ray Daugherty, the Florida Con- 
stitution states, "No intercolle- 
giate football is to be played in 
Junior Colleges of Florida." How- 
ever this ruling can be changed 
through legislation. PBJC Student 
Government President Rodney 
Smith, also opposed the issue. 

"The basic reason is that it has 
not been proven how we can sup- 
port such a program. The major 
reason for not having a football 
team, is cost. 

First, each player would re- 
quire approximately $150. - $300. 
of equipment. 

Second, a stadium with all need- 
ed and required facilities would 
be needed. 

Then there are travel expenses, 
team equipment and a coaching 

Smith also pointed out, "How 
many people would still attend 
this institution if the activity fee 
were raised from $15 to say 

Smith feels that a football pro- 
gram here would be the best 
thing that could ever happen. 

This college has the worst stu- 
dent apathy I have ever wit 
nessed, I feel that football could 
provide the kind of spirit this 
institution needs. 

Charlie Tate, head football 
coach at the University of Miami, 
said that - he wouldn't sign any 
player smaller than 6'4" and 220 
pounds: A logical place for him 
to look would be Oklahoma, Tex- 
as, or California.

At the beginning of the year our sports staff made its 
predictions on the final outcome of Florida pro and college 

The best of the picks was Florida State. We predicted 
as they ended up, to have an 8-2 mark. Next is the Universitv 
of Miami who finished with an average 5-5 season. We choss 
them to go 7-3. 

The Miami Dolphins still have one game to go. However 
thus far this season they are 5-7-1 and have a chance to bet-j 
ter our pick of 6-8. 

Our final prognostication isn't to impressive. For tb; 
University of Florida it was to be "The Year of the Gators' 
and we chose them to go 9-1. But the injury plagued Gators 
disappointed everyone and ended up with an also-ran recorf 
of 6-3-1.

Monday, January 20, 1969 

(ACP) — The College Entrance 
Examination Board appears 
ready to concede that its admis- 
sions testing program is geared 
primarily to sarving institutions 
of higher education and that, as 
a result, a kind of imbalance ex- 
ists between this service and the 
individual needs of students who 
want to continue their education 
through high school. 

But the board does not seem 
prepared to make any radical de- 
partures in its basic program of 
aptitude and achievement tests.

acquaint the men with the Palm

these emotions pent up? Take

The Car Bash lasts from

Its emphasis more likely will be 
on offering additional services to 
help students make more enlight- 
ened judgments about themselves 
and the educational institutions 
they might attend. 

This was the impression left 
at the board's annual meeting 
by its president, Richard Pear- 
son, and by the chairman and 
vice-chairman of its commis- 
sion on tests. 

The twenty-one member com- 
mission was appointed early in 
1967 to conduct a "broad review" 

of the theory and practice of the 
College Board's testing program. 
It was charged with gathering 
"evidence of the need for change" 
and deciding what examinations 
might be needed in the future. 

Nevertheless, in his annual re- 
port to the College Board, Mr. 
Pearson gave a personal assess- 
ment of where the commission 
may go. His remarks hinted at a 
possible framework for resolving

Senate Prexy's Status 
Remains In Question 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

Failure to maintain a 2.2 grade 
point average has led to contro- 
versey concerning the removal of 
SGA Vice President Jack Mc- 
According to an amendment 
passed by the students in the last 
senate election an elected execu- 
tive officer must "have a 2.4 
average upon applying and main- 
tain a 2.2." 

McLaughlin, however, con- 
tends that since he was elected 
before the law was passed he 
is not subject to its jurisdic- 
tion and therefore is still the 
legal vice president- 
He further pointed out that nei- 
ther the recently passed amend-

ment nor the constitution states 
when the ruling will officially 
become effective. 

The SGA Judicial Department 
is slated to convene sometime 
this week in an attempt to reach 
a decision concerning the issue. 

Constitutional restrictions also 
left their toll in the SGA Senate. 

Sophomore Senators Lynn Mc- 
Gilvray and Larry Krasulak 
were removed from their seats 
as they failed to complete 12 
semester hours last fall term. 

Krasulak's former position of

Causes Of The 'Lingering' Line 
Linked To A Number Of Factors 

by Craig Heyl 

'Comber Associate Editor 

No matter what the process is, 
institutional or otherwise, when- 
ever there is a slow down of some 
sort, some complaining always 
seems to evolve. 

Such was the case outside the 
Old Library, where those who had 
hoped to make some kind of 
schedule change encountered the 
"lingering line." 

When asked what the reason 
for the length of the line was, 
Mr. Laurence Mayfield, Regis- 
trar said, "It's really hard to 
put your finger on one particu- 
lar reason. However there were 
some contributing factors." 
Mayfield added that there were 
a number of students who had to 
be re-scheduled because of their 
particular class section being can- 

"Dr. Graham had to cancel 
twenty sections of various classes 
because the number of students 
in each of these classes was min- 
imal, anywhere from one to ten." 
These students had to be re- 
scheduled into existing sections 
of that particular class and some- 
times that meant re-scheduling 

If there had been on the av- 
erage of five students per class 
for each of these twenty classes, 
that would have placed at least 
one hundred people in the line 
for this reason alone, stated 
"Then there were some who had 
failed a pro-requisite and had to 
repeat it," he continued. 

"For example, let's say a stu- 
dent had taken Biology 101 in 
the Fall Semester and had been 
scheduled for Biology 102 in the 
Winter Semester. If he failed the 
101 course he had to be re-sched- 
uled so he could take it again." 
Another reason mentioned by 
Mayfield was that any student 
that had been on academic pro- 
bation in the previous semester 
and had achieved his grade point 
average which removed him from 
probation was in line to add addi- 
tional hours. 

"Then again on the opposite 
end of the scale, there were 
forty-two students that were put 
on probation from the Fall Se- 
mester and were called in and 
had to drop classes and limit 
his class load to twelve hours." 
"You see, all these students 
with their various Teasons start 
to add up," he added. 

But still another factor entered 
into the delay. 

"There were many students who 
had 'dropped and added' courses 
and had re-scheduled their added 
course right over an existing 
course on their "parent" sched- 
ule. As a student, I think I would 
find it rather difficult to be in 
two classes at the same time," 
Mayfield remarked. 

This fault was contributed to 
the student. 

On his regular registration 
days, a student might have re- 
jected his pre-planned schedule 
(the purple one), for the reason 
of just adding one course. He then 
added the class he desired with- 
out taking time to study his 

For example, a student had re- 
jected his purple schedule, made 
available to him in early 'Decem- 
ber, for the reason of adding a 

Then, he registers on his stated 
registration day, with the addi- 
tion made, and fails to study his 
schedule when it is handed to 
him. He thinks it appears to be in 
order and then finds out later, 
when he attends classes or studies 
it more carefully, that he is 
scheduled for another class the 
same time and the same day. 

When asked what can cause 
this error, Mayfield said, "Hu- 
man error, a machine will do 
exactly what you tell it to do. 

Most probably an error made by 
the counselor. 

"I believe we're being demo- 
cratic. This system was origi- 
nally set up to contend with broad 
errors and conflicts," Mayfield 

When asked if he was in fa- 
vor of the "Drop and Add Week," 
the registrar stated, "Yes. I 
think it's fine, it's the fairest 
way. Mistakes are going to be 
made, and they have to be cor- 

He had one piece of advice 
to offer to the students, "If 
you're going to 'Drop and Add,' 
just schedule one class per hour, 
make sure you study your 
schedule before you accept it." 
Several years ago there used to 
be a saying around campus, "If 
you can survive registration, you 
can graduate." Maybe a new 
one should take its place, "You 
can survive 'Drop and Add Week' 
if you pay attention." 

Gilt Pax Distribution 
Comes Again To PBJC 

by Peggy Cullen 

'Climber Stuff Writer 
Free distribution of gift pax 
has been renewed here for the 
first time in nearly three years. 

This program was discontinued 
following a ruling based on a 
related county policy, by the 
PBJC Administrative Council. 

Gift pax rations were recently 
permitted because, as of Jan. 1, 
1969, Palm Beach Junior College 
was declared no longer directly 
guided by the Palm Beach County 
Board of Public Instruction. 

"Our newly developed ad- 
visory board is somewhat more 
liberal in determining what is 
called advertising," declared 

Mr. Paul J. Glenn, Dean of Stu- 
dent Personnel. 
"I am in favor of anything ad- 
vantageous to our students so if 
this program is available in the 
future, I hope it is continued 
here," Dean Glenn added. 

Approximately 3,000 gift pax 
were distributed by volunteer 
students on Jan. 8, 9, 10, and 13, 
in the south end of the SAC 
Lounge. This offer was also 
made available to night stu- 

The pax which reached nearly 
1,900 college campuses through- 
out the country contained nation- 
ally known grooming products 
and free offers.

A Question Of Concern 

The vagueness of a recently passed SGA Constitutional 
Amendment has led to the tentative dismissal (decision pend- 
ing result of Judicial Department meeting) of Vice President 
Jack McLaughlin. 

The amendment states that an executive officer of SGA 
must maintain an accumulative average of a 2.2 to remain 
in office. 

However, this ruling was not passed until after McLaugh- 
lin had been elected to his position of vice president, and 
therefore should in no way be of concern to his term in office. 

The amendment as it was placed on the ballot, also makes 
no statement as to when this law will officially take effect. 

Since no such provision was stated it has to be assumed 
that the law becomes effective next year when it is incorpo- 
rated into the student handbook. 

We feel the Judicial Department should carefully examine 
these extremely important factors before reaching any decision 
concerning this case. 

Chamber Theatre Depicts 
Evil Of Machine Control 

by David Eunice 

'Comber Staff Writer 

The inhumanness of machine 
control was effectively presented 
in the recent PBJC Chamber 
Theatre production of George Or- 
well's "1984." 

The production stayed close to 
the text of the prose-fiction novel, 
with only one major deviation; 
the character of O'Brien as 
played by King Morrison. 

Although the new casting of 
' O'Brien, a Negro may have giv- 
en the play a contemporary 
mood, it lost more in the 
authoritative flavor by the 
strength of the actor -inter- 
preter's personality. 

The novel was adapted for the 
stage by Josh Crane, who direct- 
ed the action in two ways; by 
the use of pantonine and by past

Both method and amount: 
worked well with the simplicity 
of the stage design to make it 
easy for the audience to exer- 
cise their imagination, and to 
maintain the feeling that "Big 
Brother" is watching. 

Although the play was very in- 
teresting, some of the strong 
emotion was lost with the cast- 
ing of O'Brien. 

The intellectual aspect of the 
totalitarian party rule was forced 
to override the emotional effect 
Crane had hoped to achieve. 

Martin Tischier and Eliza- 
beth Alexander gave a fine per- 
formance in their lead roles as 
Winston and Julia. The sup- 
porting interpreters were equal- 
ly good in their respective 

Laura Bradford and Linda Gold 
played dual roles as a chorus 
and minor characters. 

Richard Sheffield supplied the 
off-stage voice of "Big Brother," 
and Charles Mayes and Carol 
Gravlin narrated the story. 

Overcoming the newness of 
the Chamber Theatre style may 
present a problem to some of 
the viewers, but once the new 
style is accepted the audience 
may agree that this is an ef- 
" fective way to present prose- 
fiction novels in a manner 
which is both understandable 
and entertaining. 

The Chamber Theatre was 
formed at Northwestern Univer- 
sity by Robert Breen about ten 
years ago. 

This was the first time it was 
used in this area, but it is ex- 
peoted that Crane will employ 
it once again next year in a PB- 
JC production. 

Tribute Extended To Astronauts

David G. Denault 

Space News Editor 

Working in the Space News 
media since 1965 with the Titus- 
ville Cocoa Courier-News and with 
radio news it gives me a great 
deal of pleasure to write this 
column for the Beachcomber, 
while attending PBJC, for a de- 
gree in education. 

The purpose of this column is 
to bring the students of PBJC 
closer to the space program, with 
personal comments and editorials 
concerning America's space flight 

My background includes report- 
ing for the space flight programs 
and launches of today, among 
them, the Pegasus program, the 
Tiros program, Gemini flights, in- 
cluding the Gemini IV Flight of 
Ed White Jr., the first man to 
walk in outer space, and the first 
flight in the Apollo program 
(Apollo 7). 

My total news hours covering 
the space launches totals over 
200 hours of reporting. 

I would like to dedicate this 
first column to the heroic astro- 
nauts of the Apollo 8 flight, Air 
Force Col. Frank Borman, Navy 
Capt. James Lovell Jr. and Air 
Force Lt. Col. William Anders. 
Borman, Lovell, and Anders be- 
came the first men to fly around 
another planet or satellite when 
they orbited the moon 10 times 
Christmas Eve and Christmas 
Day as part of their perfect six- 
day trip into space. 

The Apollo astronauts were vis- 
iting Ft. Lauderdale for a private 
reception and dinner on Satur- 
day Jan. 11 at Pier 66 Restau- 
rant. Many newsmen and peo- 
ple, perhaps 75 in number, ga- 
thered with the rain pelting down 
outside, for interviews, auto- 
graphs, a touch or handshake. 

I asked about the article from 
Houston about women objecting 
to prayers and scriptures in outer 
space, Borman commented, "It 
was sincere and the most mean- 
ingful thing we could do." Asked 
about the correspondence he had 
received since he was back, Bor- 
man said he had about eight tons 
he had not opened as yet. 

They also attended the Super 
Bowl Game, and Anders predict- 
ed the Jets "could do it." Both 
Anders older sons Frederick 17, 
and Edwin 15, were ballboys. 

If any faculty or students have 
questions about the space pro- 
gram or about astronauts please

to any students who have not had 
their vehicles inspected.

card. This gives the student 48 
hours in which to have his car 

If, at the end of 48 hours the

Convention Brings Out 


New Trend In Speech 

by Jacquie Boiling 

•Comber Staff Writer 

Area students could only wish 
vainly for some snowy weather 
during the recent 'holiday, but 
for Mr. Josh Crane, director of 
Forensics, and his wife, the sunny 
ensics, and his wife, the sunny 
south was by far the best. 

Crane and his wife boarded 
a northern-bound plane on De- 
cember 27. 

Destination— Chicago, Illinois. 
Purpose— To attend the Nation- 
al Convention of Speech Teachers 
from colleges and universities all 
over the United States. 

Emotion — "I was afraid I 
was going to be lost m a sea of 
PHDs because of the greatness 
and magnitude of the convention 
participants," remarked Crane. 
"However, such was not the 
case. The 1,200 speech enthusi- 
asts from all over the nation 
served to make this the most 
alive and stimulating conven- 
tion I have ever attended." 
The most exciting realization 
of the convention was the fact 
that speech as a mode of com- 
munications is undergoing a vast 

Speech is now considered as a 
social force. This is because of 
the recent campus reactions to 
academic freedom. 

The big question on campuses 
across the country is concern- 
ing who can and cannot come 
onto a campus to speak. 

Along this line there is a move 
away from the old-fashioned his- 
torical research associated with 
the speech process and towards 
the more practical application of 

This new trend became appar- 
ent in the many caucas sessions 
that Crane attended. 

"I tried to attend different in- 
terest group programs — drama, 
forensics, oral interpretation, and 
undergraduate speech so that I 
could bring back information to 
benefit the entire PBJC Speech 

"I am making out a summary 
sheet of the convention for the 
other speech instructors in my 

Crane attended workshops on 
topics including the chamber 
theatre, interpretation, commun- 
ication, freedom of speech, and 
research and studies in' under- 
graduate speech. 

"In these sessions I received the 
opportunity to see and hear the 
greats in the world of speech." 

"These men and women who 
are the authors of our many au- 
thoritative textbooks, are experts 
in the communication field and it 
was fascinating to meet them." 

Fascinating also, was the blan- 
ket of snow which covered the 
landscape of the 'Windy City.' 

"The snow was just beautiful. 
It fell in flurries just like one sees 
in pictures. Yet, nothing can be 
picture-perfect because we almost 
froze to death."

Plans for the second annual folk 
music festival at Palm Beach 
Junior College, Friday, at 8 p.m. 
in the college auditorium, speak 
eloquently of the success of the 
first event last February. 

The number of acts has in- 
creased from seven to 10, the 
number of possible spectators in- 
creased from 'the Student Activ- 
ity Center's 200 to the 550 of the 
auditorium, and the sponsorship 
changed from one individual, Lar- 
ry Winter, to a club, Circle K. 

In addition to these results, 
which might be expected from a 
packed house and enthusiastic ap- 
plause, one of the two headline 
acts this year owes its existence 
to last year's festival. 

The Wanderers, now well 
enough known to have had a 
successful tour up the east coast 
to Canada and back, were 
formed from two groups which 
met for the first time during 
last year's festival. 

The new group of four, Jim 
Waters, Johnny Litterel, Gini 
Knaub and Cindy Merrill were 
instantly successful. 

Sharing the spotlight as a head- 
line act will be Sandra Thomas, 
one of the biggest hits in the first 

Sandra, from Delray Beach, is 
the current Miss Galleon at PB- 
JC, and has been starred at "al- 
most every coffee house and folk 
festival in Florida." 

"Our performers are all local 
and of college age," Winter 
says. "They range from talent 
that would already be classed 
as professional, like Sandra and 
the Wanderers, all the way 
through all grades of semi-pro- 
fessional and amateur ranks to 
three performers who will be 
introduced to the public for the 
first time. 

The three debuts will be by 
Marlene Roughton and Patricia 
Nagy, singers, and Bob Burgun, 
who is "real good on the guitar," 
according to Winter. 

Bill Snyder, a singer who writes 
his own music, will be co-host 
for the event with Bruce Allen, 
with the two sharing emcee 

The festival will feature two 
other groups in addition to the 

Chris and Mike are Chris 
Ferri and Mike Callahan, who 
specialize in Kingston Folk. 

The Pipe Dream, contemporary 
folk singers, are Widget Blount, 
Danny Sorden and Lee Plymp- 
ton, III. 

Two male singers complete the 
program. Walt Comerford writes 
his own music. Clay Jones sings 
traditional folk songs. 

In spite of increased costs this 
year, tickets to the general pub- 
lic will be only $1, Winter said. 



KISS ME— "Lips," one of the paintings by Hiram Williams

Art Of Hiram Williams 
Displayed On Campus 

The works of Hiram Williams, 
Professor of art at the Univer- 
sity of Florida, are being - dis- 
played in the lobby of the Hu- 
manities building. 

The exhibit is part of a series 
of shows of contemporary Amer- 
ican artists being sponsored by 
the Art Department and by the 
Art Club. 

The most intriguing painting 
in the show is "Lips." It is a 
parody of "Playboy's" empha- 
sis on sex, done as if lips were 
on a wide screen. 

The exhibit will last through the 
month of January. 

Williams has paintings hung in 
such gallerys as the Ringling 
Bros. Museum, The Pennsylvania 
Academy of Art, and the Museum 
of Modern Art among others. 

Williams has been honored in 
Who's Who in America, Who's

Pacers Perplexed By Fourth - Quarter; 
Always Defeated In Last Period Surge 

by Tom Sherman 

■Comber Sports Editor 

The Pacer's basketball team 
has been playing their games 
lately like that of the fable "The 
Tortoise and The Hare." 

It appears that the Pacers start 
their games in the format of the 
Hare— taking an early lead, and 
maintaining it through the bulk 
of the contest until the latter part 
of the fourth period. 

To substantiate this, in the 
final stanza of the Miami-Dade 
North game, PBJC saw a thir- 
teen-point lead dwindle and end 
in a tie at the end of regula- 
tion play. In the overtime peri- 
od the Pacers stayed within two 
points of their opponents until 
the final 10 seconds — and lost 

In the Lake City game, they 
obliterated another thirteen-point 
lead and went down in defeat 68- 

Coach Jim Tanner commented 
that he hadn't been able to de- 


. . . Leads team in scoring and rebounding 

tect the reason for his team's 
fourth - quarter downfall. "I 
don't know what it is," said 
Tanner. "We're in the best phys- 
ical condition we can get, so we 
can't be completely worn out." 
Tanner also said that he 
was well set on defense. "We 
have three basic patterns against 
a man-to-man offense as well as 
three against a zone. In addition 
to them we also have a set-up 
against a press." 

Tanner also said that he 
planned to stay with his present 
game plan because he feels the 
players can get the job done bet- 
ter with a rnan-to-man game. 
Prior to Saturday night's en- 
counter with Indian River, Earl 
Findley was the Pacer's leading 
scorer with a 18.0 average and 
.also leads in rebounds with 215 
for an average of 16.5 per game. 
It seems that until some drastic 
change comes over the Pacers, 
the Tortoise will be winning more 
games than it ever has.

Judicial Department Rules 

McLaughlin Restored As Senate President 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

SGA Vice President Jack Mc- 
Laughlin has been restored to his 
duties of office due to an unani- 
mous decision by the Judicial De- 
partment, Thursday. 

McLaughlin, who was relieved 
of his position at the beginning 
of the winter term because of his 
inability to maintain a 2.2 grade 
point average, questioned the jur- 
isdiction of an amendment passed 
by the SGA Senate and student 

body after he had begun his term 
in office. 

The amendment increased the 
grade point requirements of ex- 
ecutive offfcers, by stating that 
"they shall be required to have 
a 2.4 average upon applying 
and maintain a, 2.2. 
Contending that the ruling did 
not apply to him, McLaughlin 
presented his case to the depart- 
ment on the grounds of ex post 

According to Dean Robert Moss, 
a member of the judicial board, 

the issue centered around two 
questions, does the amendment 
apply to McLaughlin, and if not 
is the ruling that it replaced in 
effect until a new slate of offi- 
cers are elected. 

McLaughlin also pointed out 
in his presentation to the board, 
that if he had applied with 2.3 
average and maintained it 
would he be removed from of- 
fice on the premise that the re- 
cently added addition to ithe 
constitution states he must have 

a 2.4 to seek office even though 
when he applied a 2.3 average 
was perfectly legal. 

The board then raised the ques- 
tion as to when did the amend- 
ment actually take effect. 

Since no date was specifically 
mentioned in the amendment it- 
self, the board reached a conclu- 
sion that the law would take ef- 
fect next March during the SGA 
executive elections and current 
officers would not be subjected 
to its jurisdiction.

JC's On Edge Of Greatness. 
Says Former Graduate Henderson 

METROPOLITAN QUARTET - Musical Stars from the 
Metropolitan Opera will present a musical program entitled 
"Prom Vienna to Broadway" at Friday's assembly beginning 
at 10:30 a.m. 

by Craig Heyl 

'Comber Associate Well tar 

"The community 'colleges of the 
state of Florida are on the edge 
of greatness, but we have not yet 

Such were the opening remarks 
of former graduate Dr. Lee 
Henderson, who is now serving 
as the Assistant Superintendent 
for Community Colleges of the 
State Department of Education. 

Speaking on "The Junior College 
of the Future," Dr. Henderson ad- 
dressed his remarks to the faculty 
of PBJC in the second of a se- 
ries of twelve in-service pro- 

The programs are devoted to 
topics which appear to be of 
the most interest to the junior 
college teacher. 

Upcoming Assembly To Feature 
Metropolitan Musical Quartet 

Continuing, Dr. Henderson 
stated, "How we achieve this 
greatness depends not just on 
faculty, or not just on adminis- 
trators, or not just on state gov- 
ernment, but that it depends on 
all of these, with each one doing 
his part and working m harmony 
with the others for the improve- 
ment of the programs we offer 
our students." 

There has been a minimum of 
student unrest in junior colleges 
so far. Dr. Henderson points out. 
He attributes this to the fact 
that a junior college has been 
traditionally concerned with 
teaching and with the students, 
rather than with research. 

"We've been spared some of 
the agonies of some of our uni- 
versity colleagues." 

Dr. Henderson also stated that 
there is one message that comes 
through loud and clear concern- 
ing the current student rebellions. 
"The students have brought one 
thing to light that is very hard 
to over look— that being, educa- 
tional institutions exist to serve 

the students." 

"Yet often," continued the As- 
sistant Superintendent, "I'm 
afraid our policies, and procedures 
and our programs have been de- 
veloped on the basis of the con- 
venience and the standards and 
the desires of the faculty and ad- 
ministration without really giving 
full consideration as to what ef- 
fect this has on our students." 

As to the question "What will 
the community college of the 
future be like," Dr. Henderson 
stated, "I'm convinced it will 
not be anything like the institu- 
tion that we know today." 
"The junior college will become 
a developmental college. 

Doctor Henderson continued to 
say that the faculty and adminis- 
trators will be concerned with 
the development of the individual. 
"If we continue to teach the 
subject matter and ignore the re- 
alities of the student's life and 
the student's social system of the 
college, we are being hopelessly

It started eight years ago as a 
tentative experiment. Six singers 
*n Metropolitan costumes and a 
Musical director pulled up in 
frxmt of a New York school in 
^ station wagon. Today the Met- 
^politan Opera Studio is a full- 
^edgecl repertory company of 
So m e fifty artists, traveling 
throughout the country. 

Tl*e founding of the Studio 
grew out of two purposes. The 
ftrst was to expose the student 
Of the city schools to live opera 
Ind the second, to bring talent- 
ed young singers to professional 
Recognition. Both purposes have 
Seen fulfillment. 
j? ou r of these talented young 
^tists compose! the Ensemble 
l h^t performs before the student 

body in an assembly Friday, Jan.

Cromwell, Ivanka Myhal and 
Grant Spradling bring with them 
the sparkling and spirited pro- 
gram "From Vienna to Broad- 

For those believing that the 
Metropolitan Opera Studio caters 
only to serious music, they have 
prepared a happy surprise. 

"Vienna To Broadway" con- 
sists of almost two hours of mu- 
sical comedy and operetta, com- 
posing a musical journey across 
half a continent and over an 
ocean, spanning 80 years. The 
only educational element is the 
experience for the performers 
whose aim is the grand opera. 

The itinerary begins in the Vi- 
enna of Emperor Franz Josef, 
goes to Paris in the 20's, through 

London and on to New York. It 
is heralded 'by a piano overture, 
a melange of •familiar tunes. 

The costuming switches in tune 
with the mood, and the setting of 
the music, while the props are 
moved and shoved with the beat 
There is a continuous stream of 
movement and humorous byplay, 
bringing the show to real life. 

The numbers featured are 
from contemporary productions 
such as Irma La Douce, Kis- 
met, South Pacific, Brigadoon, 
My Fair Lady, Mama, Show- 
boat and Kiss Me Kate. 
A reception and coffee is plan- 
ned immediately following the 
performance in the Gallery of the 
Humanities Building. This affords 
one the opportunity to personally 
discover the stimulating world of 
the Metropolitan Opera Studio. 

SGA To Underwrite 
Peter, Paul And Mary 

SGA is again bringing top name 
entertainment to the students at 
a minimal cost with the coming of 
the popular folk singing trio of 
Peter, Paul and Mary to the West 
Palm Beach Auditorium Friday 
evening, Jan. 31, at 8:30 p.m. 

As they did in the past with 
"The Association" and "The Four 
Tops," SGA is obtaining a 5.50 
discount on all $5.00, $4.00, and 
$3.00 seats. 

In addition to this, if the stu- 
dent can show a validated Palm 
Beach Jr. College I. D. when he 
purchases the ticket, he will re- 
ceive an additional $2.00 reduc- 

Under this offer, a PBJC stu- 
dent with an I. D. can obtain 
a $5.00 seat for $2.50, a $4.00 
seat for $1.50, and a $3.00 seat 

for $.50. 

Peter, Paul and Mary, one of 
the better known folk singing 
groups across the nation have an 
immensely wide repertoire. Some 
of their most famous hits include 
"If I Had A Hammer," "Puff 
the Magic Dragon," "Lemon 
Tree," "Where Have All the 
Flowers Gone," and "I Dig Rock 
and Roll Music."

A Happy Medium 

The introduction of a bill before the SGA senate that 
.would allocate a total of $200 to Circle-K Club in order for 
them to attend their annual district convention has created 
a rift of controversy among senators. 

Both factions have presented valid and convincing argu- 
ments as to why their cause or side is justified. 

The main objection to the bill stems from the fact that 
SGA has at present an extremely depleated budget. Their 
opposition answers, the money should be spent completely, 
it belongs to the students who are enrolled now. 

It appears that a simple compromise may be the answer. 

That being, rewrite the bill in the form of loan with an 
option, that the club pay it back in the event SGA funds are 
completely consumed at the end of the year. 

This action would encourage the spend-it-all faction to 
become conservative and the what-happens-when-it's-gone 
group to become a little more liberal, thus the proverbial 
happy medium is struck. 


The SGA Senate - WHY? 

According to the SGA constitution the purpose of the 
senate is to introduce, discuss and pass or reject laws, bills, 
resolutions and amendments to the constitution. 

Unfortunately, the vast majority of legislation which 
grinds its way through the senate represents the interest of 
specific clubs, organizations and social groups, otherwise" 
called the Establishment! 

Is this right? Yes -providing that the same amount of 
effort is devoted by the senate to the interest and mutual 
benefit of the entire campus I 

Obviously, too many senators 'are inclined to represent 
only the Establishment. Where is the senator who represents 
PBJC? Is he non-existent? Apparently so, especially if one 
checks tie current calendar of pending legislation! 

This legislation would lead as a list of Establishment 
requests, ranging in scope from monies for club delegates to 
attend conventions to budgetary adjustments for social events! 

Is the senate to blame? Is the Establishment to blame? 
Yes-in the sense that the senate and the Establishment have 
pursued their own selfish interest! No - when one realizes the 
disinterest of the campus in SGA! 

Without an active and vocal student body, the senate has 
turned its ear to the loud and demanding mouth of the Estab- 
lishment! The time is ripe for the senate to act and initiate 
efforts to symbolize the aspirations and desires of the entire 

This is why there is a senate! ! ! 

Voice Of The Students 

Petitions, Praises And Pleas 

To the Edtor: 

I would like to address 'this let- 
ter to the Student Body of Palm 
Beach Junior College. 

The purpose of this letter is to 
petition and inform the Student 
Body in reference to the Campus 
Food Service in our cafeteria. 

As a representative of SGA and 
a member of the Cafeteria Com- 
mittee it has been the intention 
of this committee to give con- 
structive criticism to the new 
cafeteria service and to inform 
the Student Body of these com- 
mittee meetings. 

Before the close of the Fall 
term a letter was submitted to 
the Editor of the Beachcomber 
concerning this matter and ask- 
ing the Student Body for any 
constructive criticism that they 
might have to offer the cafeteria 

Unfortunately no response was 
observed by any of the SGA 
members so it was assumed that 
the Student Body in general was 
pleased with the new manage- 

Now that the Winter term has 
begun it seems that the "old 
rumors" of poor service have 
once again arisen to haunt the 
Cafeteria service. 

One of the latest rumors is that 
that "Campus Food Services is 
as bad as the Prophet Company 
at its lowest ebb." This rumor 
is the worst judgment of the 
cafeteria service yet 
'Some of the changes brought 
about by the Campus Food Serv- 
ices are the reopening of the 
Snack Bar, the service of various 
flavors of (fresh ice cream, milk 
shakes made to order, a number 
of sundaes, freshly cooked and 
wrapped hamburgers and hotdogs, 
hot foods, a greater selection of 
hot foods, and a number of other 
changes too numerous to print 

In addition the cafeteria furni- 
ture has been changed to better 
accommodate the Student Body, 
re-locating all (the clubs into the 
Student Activity Lounge, and all 
this has been done for the gen- 
eral convenience and welfare of 
the Student Body. 

But the rumors of dissatisfac- 
tion are still lingering on campus. 

At present the best way to de- 
stroy the entire Foods System for 
PBJC is to continue these false 
rumors, or rumors that don't 
bear any facts to substantiate 

Deadline Is Set 
For Media Entries 

The MEDIA literary magazine 
has announced its deadline for 
submitting 'poetry and prose for 
this year's issue. 

Mr. Graham, advisor to the 
magazine, set Jan. 31 as the last 
date to turn in material to his 
office (AD-19) 

Poems and particularly prose 
may be entered by any PBJC 

Cash prizes for the most out- 
standing poems and pieces of 
prose, as well as the most original 
art work are to be given bv the 

The MEDIA plans to come out 
in April according to Mr. Gra- 
ham who also stated that "the 
material is of a muc h higher 
quality than that of previous 
years, and there is a great deal 
more interest shown by the stu- 
dent body as a whole." 

This letter has been submitted 
not only to inform the students, 
but also to inform the students 
that we may well be putting an 
end to any food service on the 
PBJC campus. 

Every effort has been made by 
both the Campus Food Services, 
the Administration, and SGA, to 
achieve better accommodations 
for- both the STUDENTS and the 

The best solution toward even 
better food and service is through 
your PATRONAGE and improve- 

ment SUGGESTIONS given to&l 
ther the Campus Food Serwca 
management or through SGA 

If you have any suggestions « 
ideas for the cafeteria service 
submit them to the SGA boxes fa 
the Senators in AD-5 or speak t 
any SGA representative in SGA. 

It will be our pleasure to rek> 
questions or suggestions to & ?

The Miami Pop Festival (Dec. 28-30), living up to the 
legendary huzzahs of the Monterey happening of June, 1967, 
will perhaps be significant largely because of the introduction 
or "re-introduction" of several groups. 

Triumphing as expected were known and respected 
acts as Canned Heat, Procol Harum, Iron Butterfly, Paul 
Butterfield, Jose Feliciano, Marvin Gaye, and Richie 

Wild, frenetic ovations (the kind that one senses person- 
ally), however, were found going to this newer garde of mu- 
sicians. First "discovery" status was awarded Saturday to 
Pacific Gas and Electric, a blues-rock-gospel ensemble who 
relied primarily on re-erating works and stylizations of previ- 
ously successful groups. Originally scheduled for the first 
day, PGE was invited to return both remaining days of the 

Attaining recognition later Saturday evening was young 
Canadian folksinger Joni Mitchell, author of "Both Sides 
Now" popularized by Judy Collins. It would appear that Miss 
Mitchell's acclaim came against venerable odds. Pitted oppo- 
site Steppenwolf, the largest advertised attraction, she capti- 
vated the sparse crowd who chose to remain at the "Flying 
Stage" located in meadow-like grounds. 

Steppenwolf, incidentally, for all of their extreme 
arrogance and obvious display of superstar achievement, 
proved to be the biggest disappointment of the entire 
festival. Estimating that over 25,000 people claimed to 
listen to their heavy rock, they failed to capture any 
amount of a following— even with the inclusion of "The 
Pusher," possibly their only redeeming attempt. 

On Sunday afternoon, Three Dog Night, garnered en- 
thusiastic response at the "Flower Stage" located at the 
grandstand of Gulfstream Park. Doing a great deal of ecletic 
improvisations of recognizeable hits, Three Dog Night is a 
group to watch. 

Possibly the most frenzied response of any audience was 
that which experienced a Los Angeles-based group known 
as Sweetwater. Forming and shaping slow melodic tones with 
fusions of Oriental plans, Sweetwater built its first number to 
a thrashing, pilednving performance. 

Entitled "A Motherless Child," the song is a vehicle for 
lead singer Nansi Nevins, who may well be the next addition 
to the slow-growing number of superstars (notably Gracie 
Slick and Janis Joplin). 

Backing instrumentally are keyboard instruments, 
congo drums, flue, and electric cello. Somehow all of it 
worked. Just ask anyone who joined in standing to give 
inspired ovations to a fantastic performance. 

The group has current album "Sweetwater" on Reprise. 
Don't be the last one to hear it. If you must, ask for it. It 
is an experience.

Corporations Aided In Problems 
With Inauguration Of New Class 

An attempt by Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College to help solve an edu- 
cational problem for one corpor- 
ation has led to a pilot class 
"with many unusual features," 
according to Robert C Holzman, 
chairman of PBJC's Business De- 

The class, which meets Wednes- 
day, Jan 29, 2- 30 to 4:30 p.m. 
for' the first time, grew out 
of discussions between Mrs. Mar- 
tha A. Ambrosio of the PBJC 
staff, and Warren M. Reed, vice 
president of Vineyard Industnes, 

Reed, in charge of personnel 
for Vineyard, which holds among 
other interests the McDonald's 
Hamburger franchise for central 
Florida, revealed that plans for 
expansion were being held back 
by lack of supervisory personnel. 
"We are ready to grow in 
several different directions, both 
in terms of new areas and in 
terms of new lines of business," 
Reed said, "but we first have 
to get the people we can grow 

First contacts with the college 
were m search of graduates who 
might grow into management, but 
the new class is an attempt to 
solve the problem in a more di- 
rect way. 

Six people already employed by 
Vineyard will form the nucleus 
of a class df supervisors, or em- 
ployees slated to be supervisors, 
in a 12-week course in Super- 
visory Development. 

Classes will not be lectures, but 
will be informal discussions around 
a conference .table, led principally 
by Mrs. Ambrosio and Julio R. 
Rive of the PBJC faculty but 
utilizing others from the area. 
"We will follow a definite 
educational program," Mrs. Am- 
brosio said. "The course is non- 
credit as far as PBJC is con- 
cerned, but will carry certifica- 
tion from Michigan State. Text- 
book and materials were devel- 
oped by the American Hotel- 
Motel Educational Institute." 

"It is a sequential program, 
and there are other courses which 
could follow, leading to Industry 
certification," Mrs Ambrosio 

The class will be open to other 
persons who are in management 
positions, or are slated for such 
positions, but will be limited to 
15 to preserve the conference 
type of instruction. 

"Cooperation with Vineyard 
Industries has been excellent in 

planning this course," Holzman 
said. "They are paying all ex- 
penses for their personnel, as 
well as clearing the time for 
them to study. 

"We believe there are other in- 
dustnes in the area with a need 
for supervisory personnel, and 
are ready to work with any who 

wish to add college training to 
their in-service training pro- 
grams," Holzman said. 

Registration cost for the course 
is $12.50 and textbooks and other 
materials will 'be about $20 Ad- 
ditional information may be ob- 
tained' from Mrs. Ambrosio at the

Pocers Defeated 91-71 

PBJC Fans Show Good Sportsmanship 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber Sports Editor 

The old adage "its possible to 
shine in defeat" was vividly ap- 
parent in the Pacers game 
against IRJC. 

Even though PBJC took it on 
the nose again, they may have 
possibly put forth one of 'their 
best efforts of the season. 

The Pacers, up for this game 
more than any other of the sea- 
son, played the nation's number 
one scoring team shot for shot in 
the early part of the first half. 

Ten minutes had passed in 
the contest and PBJC led &6. 
But after that, the IRJC Pio- 
neers seemed to have found 

the range and racked up seven 
quick points in a one minute 
time span. 

The brightest spot of the night 
was the dazzling play of the Pio- 
neers' Ruben Vance. The 6' 3" 
freshman guard amazed everyone 
as he poured in 28 points. 

Many people feel that because 
PBJC held their opponents to only 
91 points, (50 points below their 
average) they stalled throughout 
the game. They did not. The Pac- 
ers played a slower brand of ball, 
which they should do more often; 
they did not intentionally stall. 

In any game certain players 
have to be singled out for their 
fine play. Against Indian River,

The Pacers didn't pull a Super

jated crowd of 2,000 fans 
jr-cardiac type), 
/or a change the Pacer hoop- 
i«rs heard cheers of encourage- 
ment coming from fans of more 
n 400. But the avid PBJC fans 
'd no sooner finish a chant 
then were drowned out by 
avage sounds from the Pio- 
-respite the Division IV loss, Pacers did win something — 

It was bad enough to hear 
vulgar remarks from the Pio- 
neer fans, let alone the dis- 
gusting immature remarks dis- 
played by IRJC coach Art Tolis. 
During the course of the game 
Tolis would yell "Hey Findley, 
how many points have you got? 
Shoot the ball Earl. Hey, Findley 
four points that's all." 

Then across the scorers table 
Tolis blurted "Yea Tanner," and 
looked at the scoreboard. 

And toward the 'latter part of 
■the second half, noticing his team 
was not going to get 100 points 
or better, he screamed at the 
Pacer cagers, "Freeze the ball, 
freeze the ball." 

I also learned that at half- 
time Tolis called Earl Findley 
over to talk to him. Findley re- 
jected, and Tolls went ahead 
and told Mm "You're not going 
to get your 18 points Findley." 
Added to the boisterous re- 
marks put forth by Tolis and his 
followers was a ridiculous atti- 
tude shown by a few of the IRJC 

Being as good as they are is 
no excuse for acting as they did. 
This included a little fiasco 'be- 
tween IRJC's Doug Campbell and 
PBJC's Henry Jordan and Charlie 

Not only did the IRJC fans 
show their ill-mannered ways 
during the Januray 18 game, 
but also displayed their igno- 
rance a few weeks ago when 
Coach Jim Tanner and the Pac- 
er team scouted the IRJC- 
Miami-Dade South game at Indi- 
an River. 

I learned from the team mem- 
bers and Tanner that the parti- 
san Pioneer crowd booed the 
Pacer's when they entered the 
gymnasium and chanted in uni- 
son "Pacers go home," "Tanner 
go home." 

Yes, the pacers lost again, but 
they won the highest honor be- 
stowed on a school during a 
game — sportsmanship.

The play of Warcecer Jakes, 
Wilf Santiago, and Willie Gib-

game all night long. Jakes

Bible Not Up To Date 
States Lecturer, Cern 

by Sandra Thomas 

'Comber Staff Writer 

"Improving thought" was the 
main idea expressed by Jules 
Cern, C. S., in his lecture Tues- 
day afternoon entitled "Instant 

According to Cern every man 
has ithe capacity to think, but 
he usually doesn't raise his 
thoughts high enough. He lets dis- 
couragement and fears drag him 
down when he should realize that 
he is capable of attaining heights 
of existence never dreamed of, 
Man is not physical but spiritual 
and his mind is the all powerful 
part of the human being and it 
can rule over everything because 
it has the power of infinite truth, 
spirit, and intelligence. 

Cern protested the accusation 
that the Bible is not up-to-date. 
He feels that it is very applicable 

to our everyday life, and is an 
illustration of the power of man's 
mind over matter. 

The concept of "God" in Chris- 
tian Science takes on a new vis- 
age of an infinite spirit of truth, 
love, mind, soul, and principle. 
This spirit is all in all and occu- 
pies all space. 

Individualism is a fantastic at- 
tribute and advocated highly by 
Cern. "Why not be a leader?" 
he questioned, then added, "The 
crowd loves to follow; why not 
be a leader, instead of a follow- 
er, even if only one person fol- 
lows, or even none." 

Any interested students in these 
concepts may attend Christian 
Science meetings on campus 
where these ideas are discussed 
informally, every Friday morning 
at 7 A.M. in Room 22 of the Tech- 
nical Building.

Pledge - Power 

With the advent of the winter term and the transplant 
of social clubs from the cafeteria to the SAC Lounge, the 
garbage accumulation situation in the lounge has gone from 
bad to worse. 

Not only has there been a collection of trash such as 
paper plates, paper cups and napkins, but there has also 
been an overwhelming gathering of trays, plates and silver- 

It seems that a logical solution to this problem would be 
to harness the energy of the social and service club 
pledges, dispense with some of the more unproductive tasks 
they are required to perform, and have them keep the area 
around their club table clean.

Voice Of The Students 

Code Controversy And Courfesy 

Dear Editor: 

I should like to question the 
validity of student dispute against 
the existing dress code. 

The factors inhibiting the codes 
are intrinsicaHy involved prin- 
ciples of societal obligation, the 
function of a junior college in the 
community, and personal integ- 

I really cannot sympathize with 
some of the prevalent ideas of 
the youth of today. Within his 
grasp are timely experiences as 
well as traditional ones, and he 
is still discontented. He seeks in- 
stead faster drugs, sex, and 
thrills. His music is character- 
ized by speed and an interpreta- 
tion of morals unknown to for- 
mer generations Why are these 
resources not utilized in more 
profitable capacities? 

The only legitimate and sound- 
ly definite objection I have wit- 
nessed has been the denial of 
slacks or shorts as feminine ap- 
parel. Previously I have seen 
male preferences turn towards the 
skirt anyway. This is certainly 
not a case of feminine rebellion. 
The role of a junior college in 
the community is an essential and 
now considered inalienable right 
in the development of this youth. 
It is an opportunity for growth 
and conception of ideals neces- 
sary for entrance into the larger 
society of which all must even- 
tually accept his part. This 
is a mature responsibility essen- 
tial for a coexistence of man- 
kind. Dropouts of this smaller 
campus society are likely can- 
didates for lives of irresponsibil- 

Granted, the administration 
does reach an all high of idiocy 
when a student is turned away 
from registration because he is 
dressed in sports attire for con- 
venience. However, this is their 
mistake, and it is no cause for 
an all out reprisal of dungarees 
and long hair. 

Basic elements of dress are 
granted each individual for ex- 
pression. His variations are nec- 
essary personality expressions, 
if done with a mature attitude and 
sense of responsibility. 

There are many unfortunate 
conditions existing today over 
which the youth has no control. 
But is a mature rebellion found 
in boots and bell bottoms? 

The college, as an important 
distinctively American opportu- 
nity not found in all parts of the 
world, also has a responsibility 
as such a representative entity. 
Standards of dress and personal 
morals should be scrupulously 
guarded and developed at this 

There is no necessity for a stu- 
dent and administrative coopera- 
tion, these codes should be a spon- 
taneous expression of the student 
accepting his .obligations to the 
society of which he is the ele-

President Osceola Cites Tales 
Of Seminole Reservation life 

by Suzanne Lash 

*Comber «t&« Writer 

President Joe Dan Osceola, 
speaking before Mr. Lawrence 
Tuttle's Social Problems class, 
on Jan. 21, stressed the below 
standard conditions in which his 
tribe, the Seminoles, live. 

"Indians 'should protest a little 
more," he said, citing housing 
and education coupled with gen- 
eral poverty as -their main prob- 

The more than 1,000 Seminoles 
In Florida, he said, are located 
on isolated reservations of low 
value where conditions parallel 
those of the depression. He indi- 
cated "that this Is the common fate 
of all American Indians, victims 
of government peace treaties. 

"The Seminoles, however," 
he stated jproudly, "have nev- 
er signed a peace treaty." They 

are an independent group who 
broke away from the Creek na- 
tion when they signed a treaty 
and were moved by the govern- 
ment to an Oklahoma reserva- 

This dissenting group, termed 
the "wild people" or Seminoles 
by the Creeks, migrated to Flor- 
ida. There they were pushed into 
the Glades by the U. S. Army 
in the Seminole War around 1816. 
The tribe today, Pres. Osceola 
said, is mainly one of cattlemen. 
"The Indians are natural cow-

Hotel Management Prof. 

Rive Joins Faculty 

A man with experience in both 
industry and education, Julio R. 
Rive, is a new addition to the 
Hotel and Motel Management 
faculty at Palm Beach Junior 
College this term. 

Rive, a native of Puerto Rico, 
made his deci- 
sion to specialize 
in hotel manage- 
ment "almost by 

"I had already 
completed a B. 
A. Degree in 
Business Admin- 
istration at the 
University of Richmond, and was 
in a bull session in the Air Force, 
when someone mentioned the fact 
that hotel administration was a 
good field," he said. 

"The more I thought about it, 
the more I liked it. I had al- 
ready done some work in hotels 
to earn extra money during 
college, and my mother had 
been a home economics teacher, 
so I knew something about ho- 
tels and something about food." 
Once having reached a decision, 
Rive quickly earned- a Master's 
E>egree from Florida State. "I 
knew the field was right for me 
when I started making all A's." 
His first job was with Inter- 
continental Hotels, a subsidiary 
of Pan American World Airways, 

traveling through South and Cen- 
tral America as a training su- 
pervisor in 1957. 

He is co-author, with Dr. 
Donald Lundberg, of a training 
manual still in use by Inter- 
continental Hotels. 
After two more years with In- 
tercontinental as assistant mana- 
ger of the Verabero Oasis Hotel 
in Cuba, he moved to the Allison 
Hotel in Miami Beach where he 
served in five different manage- 
ment positions in as many years. 
At the Allison, Rive met and 
married a management employee, 
the former Gail P. Hollis Of Can- 
ada In early 1963, the couple ac- 
cepted job offers in Puerto Rico, 
where Rive was night manager of 
the El San Juan, and his wife 
assistant manager of the Da 
Vinci, both in San Juan. 

In August, 1963, Rive accept- 
ed a challenge from the presi- 
dent of Inter-American Univer- 
sity of Puerto Rico to organize 
a Hotel Management program 

Starting that fall with 10 stu- 
dents, the program grew to 100 
students this fall. 

Rive, who has two children, 
Joseph, 5, and Valerie, 16 months, 
will be instructing classes in sales 
and promotion in hotels and res- 
taurants, legal problems, and a

Record Remains; 
Attempt Fails 

(AOP) Bill Donnell, freshman 
from Duncan, Oklahoma, didn't 
quite make the world record of 
eating 56 hard-boiled eggs in one 
hour in 'his attempt last Sunday. 
Bill was the star attraction of 
his pledge class function as he 
stuffed down 41 hard-boiled eggs 
in his alloted hour. 

About 150 members, pledges 
and dates of his fraternity 
jammed into the large dining 
room of his house to watch the 
event. Even though he didn't 
break the record he was ad- 
mired for the attempt 
"I thought I could 'break the 
record," Bill commented after 
his defeat. "I ate fifty of them 
in high school after being chal- 
lenged by some of my class- 
mates. I guess I just can't eat 
tike I used to." 

Before the event Bill had only 
one more comment. "I can't stand 
hardboiled eggs "

The Floyd Patterson Of The PBJC Campus] 

by Tom Sherman 

O'liil'M - Sports Editor 

A few years ago, former Heavy- 
weight Boxing Champion Floyd 
Patterson was shown on a tele- 
vision special at his training camp 
while preparing for his return 
bout against Sonny Liston. 

Coach Mel tageriun is no 
championship boxer, nor is he 
preparing for a championship 
bout, but he is performing one 
of his own training programs. 

Every day Edgerton jogs ap- 
proximately four and a half to 
five miles on a course measur- 
ing off along Lake Worth Road, 
around by Lake Osborne, and 
back through the park near 
Lake Osborne. 

Edgerton said that his main 
purpose is to keep his weight 
down. "I go steadily over the 200 

pound mark. But when I work^ 
out, I can hold it down to around 
190 to 195." 

Along with jogging, Edgerton 
does taper down on his food in- 
take. "I try to maintain a light 
breakfast and lunch and have a 
normal supper," commented Ed- 
gerton, "The weight part of at- is 
probably more psychological." 

The first year coach at PBJC 
said that he works out at a maxi- 
mum of a half an hour a day. 
"I do it by time. If I exceed 
this time period I lose my pur- 
pose. I do, however, increase my 
speed a little. Right now I run 
about 25 minutes a day, working 
my way up to 30 minutes." 

"I'm not a health nut," 
stressed Edgerton, "I just do it 
for my own personal satisfac- 
tion. I feel better and can sleep 
better after I do this." 

Edgerton does no other exer-^ 
cise and never stops during a 
workout. He also stressed that it 
is the discipline that makes it 

"I don't do any other exer- 
cises, except participate in sports, 
but this sort of thing just has 
to appeal to the individual." 

Asked if he feels this kind of 
exercise is better than weight- 
lifting, isometrics, or any other 
physical fitness program Edger- 
ton replied, "I try to stay away 
from advocating anything. It 
works for me, and as I said be- 
fore, it is a personal thing and 
it is up to the individual." 

Edgerton has been doing this 
for almost two years. He is no 
Floyd Patterson, but he does 
keep himself in shape — for any- 
thing 'that may come along.

Confusion Arises During Drop-Add Week 

Baseball Prospects Uncertain; 
Pitching Is Determining Factor 

by Jim Scruggs 

Voraher Staff Writer 

In a game where the words 
"pitching" and "success" are 
synonomous, coach Mel .Edgerton 
and his PBJC Pacers may have 
dieir hands full in their bid for 
honors Ms season on the base- 
toll diamond. 

"There is just not a great 
abundance of pitchers," comment- 
ed the first year coach — "espe- 
eialiy for a team with a full 
twenty-two game schedule." 

As a result, every pitcher will 
have to throw a great deal and 
this could be a determining fac- 
tor In die season's outcome. 
Of the nineteen-rnan roster, 
only three are returning. They are 
Bill Rhoden, with the highest bat- 
ting average of .260. Dan Bigbie, 
wf»se average is .183, and Jim 
Cariseo, a disappearing .174. 

The bulk of last week's roster 
includes: Bob Leeman, a six foot 
195 ib. right handed freshman 
from Ft. Lauderdale, freshman 
James Aram who, at 6' 1", 160 
lbs. will also be counted on for 
infield duty, and rounding out the 
South Florida trio Ron Hinners, 
a 5' 11", 190 lbs. freshman pitch- 

From Jupiter High comes 
right-handed pitcher Dale Shar- 
rock. It has been said that the 
$'?', 170 pound freshman can 
throw as well or "better than 
Pete Broberg from Palm Beach 

To compensate for his 5' 5". 110 
pound frame, freshman outfielder 
Jese Akvbo from Belle Glade has 
blir.di.ig speed to aid him in his 
bid for a starting positon. 

When asked to comment on his 
team's strong points, Edgerton 
was quick to stress the Pacer's 
defensive strength. "All positions 
should be filled with experienced 

A glance at the schedule for 
the 1969 season shows eleven 
home games against an equal 
number of away contests. Miami- 
Dade North, Broward, and Indian 
River are expected to offer the 
Pacers the toughest competition. 

BB Team Sinks Lower 
In Ooze Of Defeat 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber Sports Editor 

This past week, parts of Cali- 
fornia have been struck with ter- 
rible rains resulting in mud 

Since the holiday break, it 
seems as though the Pacer bas- 
ketball team has had its share 
of rain resulting in their own 
kind of mud slides — losing five 
games in a row. 

The last game the PBJC team 
won was on January 4 against 
Wesley College of Delaware. 
Since that time the Pacers have 
lost to Broward, Miami-Dade 
South, Indian River, Edison, 
and Miami-Dade North. 
Last Wednesday the PBJC cag- 
ers put forth possibly one of their 
worst efforts of the season, ex- 
cept for a minority few, losing 
69-61 to MDN. 

Little Willie Gibson showed his 
true colors as he pumped in 25- 
points from his guard position. 

According to Coach Jim Tan- 
ner, "Gibson did a real fine 
job and was responsible for 
breaking up the press put on by 
Dade North." 

This Wednesday the Pacers 
play host to Broward JC, who 
supports a 15-6 record. 

Asked if he had prepared to 
change his game pattern, Tanner 
said that he would try and stay 
with their present two platoon 
game plan, with a deliberate type 
of offense and a stout defense. 

"We won't try anything bas- 
ically different," commented 
Tanner, "We don't need to play 
a more cautious game as -we did 
against Indian River." 
Quizzed on what he felt was the 
overall reason for his team's 
downfall, Tanner replied, "I just 
don't know. There is no way you 
can tell. I do feel we don't have 
the cohesiveness in our players 
—what you need on a good team."

"Now that we have gone to 
the pre-payment of fees program 
for the winter term," stated Dean 
of Men, Robert Moss, "this some- 
what adds to the confusion of the 
'Drop-Add Week.' " 

Such was the provocation for 
the Registration 'Committee to 
form a subcommittee comprised 
of faculty and administrators to 
look at the problem and to see 
how it can be procedurally tak- 
en care of. 

Dean Moss, a member of the 
Registration Committee and a 
member of the subcommittee, 
stated, "If the student would look 
at the problem realistically, he 
would see that he really doesn't 
have a valid gripe." 

Moss went on to say that if 

a student went into the "Drop- 
Add" week, with the intent of 
changing courses, for varied 
reasons, what in effect he is 
doing is extending the actual 
registration period. 

"We're not really trying to keep 
the students out, we're really try- 
ing to get them into the classes 
they want." 

"But they tell us what they 
want one day, and then they turn 
around and tell us they don't 
want it later on." 

"Is there something we're not 
telling the students to get them 
to behave so they can get what 
they want in terms of courses?" 
queried Moss. 

He went on to say that if all the 
signs at registration, and all the 
preaching by administrative per- 

sonnel asking the student to 
"Make All Your Changes Today," 
or "Are you satisfied with your 
schedule in its present form?" 
and "Are you going to accept 
your schedule completely?" 
doesn't fully make the student 
aware that this is the time to 
make a change 'in his schedule, 
not the first week of classes, he 
didn't know what else could be 

Making up the committee are a 
balance of faculty and adminis- 

Mr. Walker Graham and Mr. 
Charles Connell represent the 
faculty and Dr. Paul Graham 
and Moss represent the admin- 

"The committee will be trying 
to make an improvement upon 

the procedural element of the 
'Drop-Add' Week," stated Moss. 
"One procedural way of chang- 
ing it might ibe to separate the 
different elements that comprise 
the long waiting line into differ- 
ent places." 

An example of this would be 
to take all the students who just 
wish to drop a course to a dif- 
ferent location. 

"The one thing I'm concerned 
about is that we're trying to be 
sensitive to snags, we're try- 
ing to make things as smooth 
as possible," stated the Dean. 
Moss added that any and all 
opinions or suggestions of stu- 
dents would be greatly appreci- 
ated by the committee. 

These suggestions or opinions 
can te left in AD 05, the office 
of the Dean of Men.

Colleges Strive 

For C@@ri®ii§i@is 

by James Fuller 

'Cumlior News Editor 

Administrative heads from 
FAU, PBJC, and Broward Junior 
College are tentatively set to meet 
Monday, Feb. 17 to discuss such 
possibilities as one application 
from PBJC, or Broward to FAU. 

The purpose of these meetings 
between the institutions is to as- 
sist the students in metriculation 
from a junior college into an 
upper division school. 

Items to be discussed include 
a common catalog, exchange of 
professors, block booking, one 
application for financial aid, 
and one health record. 

Department heads from the 
three institutions will attempt to 
set up programs in the various 
fields of study which would also 
help the student in transferring 
from one school to another. 

This will be accomplished by 
co-ordinating the fields of study 
hat ween the institutions. 

The ultimate goal being strived 
for is to make PBJC and FAU 
one university on two campuses.

The Palm Beach Junior College

The proposal, put forward as

Mr. Vincent Price, scheduled to 
appear in a special evening as- 
sembly program at 8 p. m. 
Wednesday, February 12, in the 
auditorium, is an actor of con- 
siderable renown and a noted art 
collector and critic. 

He will appear here as a lec- 
turer, sharing his great enthusi- 
asm for the arts. 

Art was Vincent Price's in- 
itial interest in" life, but he 
turned to the theater while 
studying in London as a young 

Frequently noted for sinister 
roles, Price has appeared in such 
thrillers as "The House of Wax," 

"House on a Haunted Hill," "The 
Tingler" and "Masque of the Red 

He is equally at home on the 
stage and has appeared in the 
New York City Center's produc- 
tion of "Richard III" and later in 
"Cocktail Party" and "The Lady 
Is Not For Burning." 

Although he does not sketch 
or paint, Price has gained rec- 
ognition as a major collector 
and makes his own collection 
available to the public through 
local museums. 

He is a patron of several con- 
temporary American artists and 
art consultant and buyer for 
Sears, Roebuck and Co. 
There will be a reception im- 

mediately following the program 
in the auditorium.

would in no way interfere with 
action at the state level, and 
that "we should express our 
feelings to the legislators." He 
won approval of a motion that 
the board: 
Take- a position; 
Put it in writing; 
And that the chairman should 
appear before the legislative dele- 
gation to state the position orally 
and to answer any questions. 

After discussion in which Board 
Chairman Richard D. Hill agreed 
that "I'm alarmed by this thing, 
just as I know the rest of you 
are," McKay made another three- 
item motion, summing up the 
board's position. 

That loss of the funds, in fi- 
nancing as well as in control is to 
the best interest of Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

That loss of the funds, (about 
$460,000 this year), would "sorely 
hurt the college." 

That there are two suggested 
alternatives for raising the mon- 
ey, one to allow the trustees 
to levy millage and the other 
to obtain alt support from the 
state, and that "both of these 
alternatives are undesirable." 

McKay"s motion directed that 
the board attorney, Richard B.

Convictions Of An SO A President 


Since I first assumed the office 
of the student body president, I 
have feit that to reflect the con- 
cern of those I represent is my 
ultimate responsibility. 

There is, of course, a rather 
restrictive stipulation to such a 
philosophy — that being the dif- 
ficulty of surmising true majority 

Incorporating such difficulties 
into my view of the Presidency 
has oft times forced me to rely 
on my personal convictions for 
administrative decisions. 

The recent controversy over 
the dress code policy of this 
junior college is one such is- 
sue. The issue has been too 
often clouded by non objective 
arguments and an indictment of 
attitudes rather than issues. 
This institution has maintained 
a high degree of achievement and 
order. Other colleges constantly 
inform me of how impressed they 
are with our campus and its stu- 

If this were the total picture, 
then there would be no need for 
change. It, however, is not. 

One presupposes that an edu- 
cational institution is both toler- 
ant and progressive. The under- 
lying note of our educational sys- 
tem is to instill into one, the abil- 
ity to accept the responsibility of 
his role in society. 

Our education also stresses, 
as does the nature of our Con- 
stitution, the toleration of other 
people's conception of their 

Surely, we, as students, realize 
that school is not a democracy. 
It would be foolish to ascertain 
that empiricism, is needless. 

Yet when any issue of student 
desire is dismissed with no con- 
sideration, the institution is de- 
feating its ultimate purpose.

Since I have been reading this 
editorial column it has come to 
my attention that the social clubs 
on campus are constantly being 
attacked in several aspects. 

Students claim that these clubs 
have no real purpose but to party, 
discriminate against individuals, 
form cliques, and be a general 
bother to everyone. 

My fraternal organization (so- 
cial club) has been on campus 
since 1937. It has contributed to 
the school in many ways. 

Before the drama club was 
organized, it produced all the 
plays at PBJC. Now we have 
two basic functions — the first 
being the sale of a student di-

Beachcomber Criticized 
For Hiding From Issues 


In reference to the letter which 
appeared in last week's issue of 
the Beachcomber, I would like to 
take this opportunity to set some 
things straight. 

It should be brought to light 
that there is NO rebellion being 
massed against the present dress 

There is, however, a large 
portion of the student body who 
disapprove of the present dress 
code and have signed a petition 
stating their- disapproval. 
I would not call this a rebel- 
lion but rather the exercising of 
the right to make changes 
through democratic procedures. 

The petition was circulated for 
two and a half days, and was then 
presented to the SGA for the pur- 
pose of revealing -the opinions of 
1,114 students, so that action 
might be taken. 

Miss Wolske's question, "Is a 
mature rebellion founded in boots 
and bell bottoms?" is quite un- 
founded and confuses fashion with 
what she terms a rebellion. 

I was both shocked and filled 
with sympathy when I read the 
following statement: "Standards 
of dress and personal morals 
should be scrupulously guarded 
and developed at this age." 
I sympathize with anyone who 

at college age can't decide for 
himself his mode of dress, and 
lacks the possession of personal 
morals which should have been 
developed long ago. 

Some facts which Miss Wolske 
and other students should know 
are as follows: : 1) This is a state 
supported school. Why should we 
be denied the privilege that other 
state supported schools are al- 
lowed? 2) The following Florida 
schools have either dropped or 
revised their dress code for the 
expansion of individualism: San- 
ta Fe JC, Miami-Dade JC, Bre- 
vard JC, Indian River JC, Flor- 
ida State U, the U. of Florida, 
and FAU, 

I would suggest that the Beach- 
comber start publishing facts such 
as those above and start provid- 
ing the students with these facts 
rather than allowing people to 
transmit their narrow-minded 
opinions of youth to others, and 
tying these into an issue which 
concerns and represents the 
wishes of 1,114 students. 

It is time for the Beachcomber 
to bring these issues to light by 
doing some reporting for a 
change, start producing facts, 
and above all, quit hiding from 
the issues.

LONG ARM OF THE LAW-Bob Baird goes up for two 
in a desperate attempt to overtake Broward in the closing 
minutes. BJC won 97-85. 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber Sports Editor 

Willie Gibson, a 5' 8" 125 pound 
guard poured in 27 points in a 
losing cause against Broward last 

Gibson, a former Seacrest High 
grad and Suncoast Conference 
scoring leader, racked up 21 
points in the second half by hit- 
ting on seven of nine shots from 
the floor. 

Coach Jim Tanner termed the 
97-85 loss to Broward "just 
plain bad." "We were bad, 
there is no doubt about it. Our 
defense was completely flat, and 
nothing went right." 
Along with Gibson's fine per- 
formance was that of Earl Find- 
ley who contributed 20 points and 
13 rebounds. Warcecer Jakes led 
all rebounders with 18. 

The entire night was mostly a 
scoring battle between Gibson 

Draft Not Always Dodged; 
Rhoden Elated At Prospect 

by Tom Sherman 

'-Oombpr Sports Editor 

Bill Rhoden was overwhelmed 
after being notified that he had 
been picked by the Atlanta 
Braves in the fourth annual pro- 
baseball draft. / 

"I was just completely sur- 
prised;" said Rhoden. "The base- 
ball officials called up the Palm 
Beach Post-Times, and then the 
Post called me. I really couldn't 
believe it," 

Rhoden said that Saturday was 
the first time he heard of it. 
"Johnny Groth, a scout for the 
Braves, had contacted me about 
two weeks ago, but said nothing 
of the draft." 

Asked on how he felt about 
Rhoden being drafted, Coach 
Mel Edgerton replied, 'I'm just 
plain happy. I'm glad somebody 
from our team has had the op- 
portunity to be chosen. I'm 
also very fortunate to be here 
at this time too." 
Rhoden, a 6' 3" 200 pound right- 
hander, was used last year as 
an outfielder, infielder, and pitch- 

According to the former Sea- 
crest High grad, Groth was most 
impressed with his pitching abil- 
ity even though he only saw him 

Noting that Rhoden had been 
picked up as a pitcher, Edgerton 
brought out that he and Rhoden 
had discussed this issue. "Bill 
and I talked about pitching, and 
he said that he wants to pitch 
this season." , 

Questioned on whether or not 
Rhoden's appearance would 
boost the team morale, Edger- 
ton answered, "Definitely! I 
feel that the players, knowing 
he is on the team, will try a 
little harder. Each player de- 
pends on the other, especially 
the returnees. And the other 
teams also will look up to him." 

"He's got a real good attitude 
too," said the baseball mentor, 
"The other players kid him a lit- 
tle but he takes It pretty good." 

DRAFT VICTIM— Bill Rhoden, warms up in the batting 
cage after being drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the recent 
pro-baseball draft. 

Quizzed about any college pref- 
erences, the quiet sophomore 
chuckled and said, "Oh probably 
Florida and Stetson. I would like 
to finish college." 

Edgerton also beamed as he 
noted that the Braves aren't go- 
ing to sign him until after this 
season. Instead they will wait to 
see his record. 

Rhoden made the Post-Times 

All-Legion team for the 1968 

season being listed as a short- 

During the interview with Ed- 
gerton, the baseball team was 
having a practice game. In about 
ten minutes, Rhoden went two 
for two with a double and a tri-

turn out to be another Drysdale 
or Gibson.

Tennis Team A State Threat 
Says Coach Bobbie Knowies 

Coach Bobbie Knowies may 
sound a bit optimistic when she 
says her team will finish third in 
the state, but if one considers this 
years' added depth, it may con- 
tribute to a surprising season. 

Thus far this season the wom-

The number one position is 

held down by Maria Montero, 

number two, Gail Marcum, and 

number five by Alene Westgate. 

All are sophomores and should 

be counted on heavily. 

Three freshmen from West 
Palm Beach round out the squad. 
Maria Cartaya is number three, 
Joanne Rogers number four, and 
Kaithy Patrick number six. 

Miss Knowies was quick to 
point out the strong points, "We

Indian River 6-1 with Montero, 
Cartaya, Westgate, and Patrick 
taking the singles, and the teams 
of Montero-Cartaya and Marcum- 
Patrick winning both of the dou- 
bles matches. 

"I think we can finish third 
in our division this year and 
possibly third or fourth in 
the state," commented Miss 

"Last year there were only 
five teams and this year there are 
17. Quite a difference." 

This year's tournament will be 
held at Miami-Dade South. 

This Thursday the Pacers travel 
to Miami-Dade North. According 
to Miss Knowies they are a real 
powerhouse and the girls may 
have a rough time. 

But overall the women's team, 
if everything goes just right, can 
better their record of 3-6 from 
last year.

Soyuz Vs. Apollo 

U. S. Ahead In Race

Some scientists feel that for the 
"rat time since cosmonaut Lt.

ilk in space, the Soviets have 

wed ahead of us in man space 


The Soviet Flight of Soyuz 5 
nd 6 transferred pilots and 
achieved the first orbiting space 
station. For their scientific 
achievement the Soviets should be 
admired by all nations. 

It might be necessary to begin 
relying on such maneuvers for 
rescues, if space crafts become 
stranded in orbit around the 
moon or other planets.

will make it 

If Student Government is to 
reach its potential it will only 
be after we have established a 
strong campus identity. I firmly 
believe that the more personal 
responsibility given the student 
the more he will maturely exist. 
To those who wish things never 
to change I say they inevitably 
will. The action and issue are 
rather insignificant, the principle 
is monumental. 

Please, do not allow restriction

all administrators realize that 
only through mutual agreement 
can the institution progress.

The successful transfer added 
a great deal of luster to the 
Soviet program, overshadowed 
by the American Apollo Moon 

The Apollo and Soyuz are sim- 
ilar in build and weight. Soyuz 
weighs about 1,500 pounds less 
than Apollo, and is not as high 
or wide. 

Though the Soviets have made 
several outstanding achievements 
in man space-flight, the United 
States did send the first earth- 
lings to orbit the Moon. 

The Apollo program will land 
a man on the Moon in 1969, 
before the Soviets begin testing 
a booster like the Saturn V. 
The United States has scored 
100 percent in launching men 
into space, never loosing a 
team of astronauts in orbit 

Only one crew (Apollo 6) per-

To comment on what Sir Ber-

fallen four years behind the So-

Scientists' opinions should be 
respected, and not judged on how

that the United States is about 
to orbit the Earth in February

Reader's Theatre

The first Coffeehouse Reader's 
Theatre production of the year is 
to be presented Tuesday, Feb. 18 
at 11 a.m. in SAC Lounge. 

The satirical comedy, entitled 
"Behind the Beyond" is a parody 
of the melodramatic British draw- 
ing room problem play. 

The cast of the production is 
composed of four females and 
three males. The narrator is 
Elaine Orris. Sir John is por- 
trayed by Russ Bennett, Lady

Harding by Bob Baskin, Mrs. 
Harding by Lizabeth Anderson, 
the French maid by Linda De

to play the dual role of the valet 
and postal clerk. 
The narrator describes the thea- 
ter and audience of that time, 
and the actors and actions in it 
in a numerous fashion. 

The other cast members are 
interpreters in the play. They 
represent the caricatures of stock 
melodramatic actors.

Priceless Is The Price 
Price Puts On Daughter 

by Peggy Cuilen 

'Combei Staff Writer 

Vincent Price, celebrated star 
and noted art collector and critic 
presented a most stimulating lec- 
ture combining wit, humor and 
knowledge about the fine arts in 
a special evening assembly last 
Wednesday, Feb. 12. 

For the past few years Price 
has shared his enthusiasm for 
the fine arts by traveling 
throughout the country lecturing 
on how to enjoy art. "Art, he 
exclaimed, is as close as man 
will ever come to repay the debt 
for his creation." 

When asked what his favorite 
piece of his art collection was, 
he answered, "my daughter, . . . 
but she's not for sale." Price 
named the PRADO in Madrid, 
Spain as his favorite museum. 

He elated great enthusiasm for 
the Modem Arts. "Many people 
dislike this type of art, said 
Price because it is so violent and 
ugly, but then, so is our times, 
and today's artist is merely the 
reporter of todays' happenings. 

"An actor — that's what I re- 
ally am," claimed Mr. Pnce. He 
demonstrated this talent with a 
stirring interpretation of Romeo's 
death speech from the play 

Mr. Jim Houser, chairman of 
the Art Department presented 
Price to an audience of over 500. 

Following the lecture Price signed 
autographs and answered ques- 
tions at a reception for him.

Limit Discussion 

It was onie said that the most insignificant things receive 
the most amount oi attention. 

Sitoli is the iase of the SGA Senate. 

At present there are two Iry-law.s on the iloor of the sen- 
ate, one is to establish the number of absences a senator may 
obtain before expulsion, the other is the establishment of a 
loan fund. 

The senatorial absence by-law has been submitted for the 
second time, in which each presentation has accumulated more 
than a dozen amendments and countless hours of debate. 

It this In-law would have been given ample considera- 
tion prior to its writing, the literal waste of time in discussion 
ol the law could have been avoided. 

The loan fund by-law is doomed to the same extent. 

Ample consideration, should include discussion with sen- 
ators outside of senate meetings. Through this, debate can be 
minimized ii senate opinion is collected before hand, and in- 
corporated in the legislation. 

According to a recent rash of letters to the Beachcomber 
it seems the newly proposed dress code is at least causing 
some controversy among students on a campus noted for its 
apathy about anything and everything - controversy among 
the few who write letters to the' editor, that is like the SGA 
President Rodney Smith (what's in a name), Vicky Wolske 
a Pole - that's, what's in a name!) and Mike Moan (the on 
igain-off again value man!) 

Great issues, principles, possible student rebellions, 

reedom of the individual, maturity of the PBJC student, 

morality, God, motherhood and country are all declared to 

be at stake along with dungarees, bell-bottoms, sandals and 


Anyway, before the earth-shattering decision to dress 
or not-to-dress is decided once and for all, Yours Truly

nyt img (sort ol a nudist campus under the sun) then it 
rould solve the problem of a dress code once and for all! 
it course, there would be other problems to overcome - like 
ne wise guy who would want to regulate the degree of 
ran a person might sport. 

I can just see counselors issuing to incoming Freshmen, 
reshly pnnted copes of the Student Handbook on the Ethics 
of Sunburn and the all new PBJC Tanning Code* 

On the bright side, though, no clothes at all would 
promote Navel smiling contests," eliminate clothes snob- 
bery give initiative to the modest to invent new ways of 
carrying books from class to class, prevent the use of glass 
top tables in the cafeteria and delete forever the word

Obscenity ^ Maturity Or /literacy 

Latrinalia, commonly referred 
to as the lingo of the washroom, 
and various other exponents of 
obscenities have apparently found 
a home in a number of collegiate 

The four-letter word craze ac- 
cording to authorities originated 
in the "Big Ten" area and has 
spread to several institutions 
throughout the nation. 

The situations seem to differ 
but the results in most cases are 
the same. 

The Purdue Exponent pub- 
lished a poem that described 
sexual perversions and a col- 
umn that referred to a school 
official in somewhat earthy 

The result — varied student and 
faculty reaction and a probe by 
administrators and regents. 

The Daily Cardinal of the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin printed four- 
letter words screamed by a lead- 
er of the SDS movement. The 
result — varied reaction, contro- 
versy and a probe by a special 

The Boston University News 
carried an article concerning a 
controversial issue which included 
photographs of nudes. 

The result — varied reaction, 
controversy and a probe by a 
special committee. 

Another common occurrence 
was that printers legally re- 
fused to print the profanity, 
causing a number of publica- 
tions to search for new print-

mites 1 Uprisings 

(ACP) The frequent occurrence 
of violent and non-violent disrup- 
tive action on college campuses 
has stimulated a disappointingly 
limited public discussion, believes 
Dr. James Beck, assistant profes- 
sor of physiology at the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota. 

Beck believes failure to com- 
municate between the adminis- 
tration and the "liberals" is 
due simply to the fact that the 
groups talk about different 

When one group's discourse 
concerns life and death and the 
quality of life, and the other's 
concerns rules of procedure for 
setting dormitory hours and 
whether one is permitted an ob- 
scenity, which" group is obliged 
to change its universe of dis- 

"Universities within the United 
States are generally not the 
sources of honest criticism and 
broader vision by which the so- 
ciety might be served," Beck ob- 

Change is "imperative and 
urgent," Beck said, although he 
doesn't believe- it is justification 
for some of the tactics used. 
Both groups are obliged to con- 
sider the issue as it arises, Beck 

"We cannot hide "behind pro- 
cedural rules." His inclination is 
strongly to nonviolent resistance 
and reconstruction. 

"it's what's happening" as their 
source of justification. 

It should be noted that free- 
dom goes hand-in-hand with re- 
sponsibility, as there is no such 
thing as complete freedom. 

The question then arises, "Is 
the printing of obscenities a mark 
of irresponsible journalism?" 

The answer is' yes. The purpose 
of profanity is to offend, and in- 
cite anger. 

Profane language is used only 
because the speaker did not 
have the intelligence to think 
of a more descriptive word. The 
speaker either has a limited vo- 
cabulary or he wishes to pro- 
voke his audience. 
The use of a so-called "four- 
letter word" does not add to the 
realism of a news story, it takes 
away. It interrupts, shatters ,the 
mode of thought, and is just plain 



If the word can be substituted 

by a like synonym why use 't 

knowing that it will only proved 

the majority of your readers? 

A second argument proposed 

is that obscenity Is realism, 

therefore people are mature 

enough to read it. 

Editor and Publisher, recent:* 
received a letter-to-the-editor c 
which a reader elaborated on n 
article concerning the Walker 

The letter contended that an- 
cle missed the message at- 
tained in the report, by omlttir| 
the words uttered by the polkt 
and protestors. 

The letter then asks "Coat 
you think your readers are ma- 
ture enough to read the word* 
the whole fuss is about?" 

Editor and Publisher answerei 
"The maturity of our readers is 
not the point. The maturity «' 
our editors is." 



A New Breed Of Man 



Last January 8, I joined a line 
where you could expect a three 
hour wait to -get in to add and 
drop courses. 

During .the course of waking, 
a group of us set up the anti- 
registration Committee. The pur- 
pose of this committee was to 
right the wrongdoings of the Reg- 
istration Committee. 

I am sorry to admit we have 
failed— Nothing, not even a field 
in May could correct the system 
we have now. 

Before we dissolve our anti- 
committee, we would like you to 

know how effective pre-registra- 
tion can be. 

First and most important of 
all, is to print a booklet re- 
vealing to the students the 
courses being offered and the

Q. Why are astronauts willing 
to risk their lives? This was the 
question asked by faculty and 
students this past week. 

This question is not, by any 
means new. In a recent discus- 
sion, a group of distinguished 
psychiatric experts came to the 
following conclusions: 

9 The astronauts are bored 
with normal life. For them, the 
unknown holds excitement rather 
than terror. 

® They want to reach the very 
top. No second-rate career will do 
for them. 

©They are conscious of risks, 
but not reckless. But once the 
risks are evaluated they are put 
out of mind. The astronauts re- 
fuse to consider anything but 

Spacemen like Col. Frank 
Borman, Maj. William Anders, 
and Capt. James Loveli, of the 
Apollo 8 crew who orbited the 

Moon in December, are not cre- 
ated by Disney. 

It takes many years and mi 
lions of dollars to train astro 
nauts to fly the various span 

In fact, if an astronaut wes 
paid the total amount spent h 
one year of his training he ww'; 
receive about $140,000. 

In an interview with Dekc SU 
ton, head of astronaut trainir^ 
I asked how difficult it is to te 
come an astronaut. His roj>\ 
was, "Learn to fly, study a pa: 
ticular phase of Earth Scfeaa 
and obtain a degree in that «i 
area. Then apply!"

Reader Condemns Quoting 
When Taken Out Of Context 


1 do not wish to initiate a pub- 
lic correspondence with Mr. 
Moan, but feel obligated to reply 
to his condemnations. 

The opinion was just that, not 
a representative proclamation of 
the Beachcomher, as Mr. Moan 
supposed. It is a personal estima- 
tion of the role of responsibility 
of the student to the society of 
which he is a part, and a provoca- 
tion for awareness and thought 
on the subject. In that respect I 
was successful, as demonstrated 
by Mr. Moan's reply. 

In addition, I should like to 
thank him for the interest and 
accuracy he displayed in quot- 
ing selected phrases, however, 
they were mis-interpreted in 
their removal from context. 

I can see no loss of identity in 
"scrupulously guarding one's 
Standards of dress and morals." 

Unfortunately for many like 
you, Mr. Moan, responsibility and 
obligations are prerequisites for 
respect and opportunity.

'Comber Still Hiding 
From Dress Code Facts 


I would like to comment on your 
last weeks' article entitled '"Com- 
ber Concepts." I will not take 
back my critisisms (sic) toward 
your hiding from the issues. 

True, in Dec. 17 issue of the 
Beachcomber you printed your 
own speculations on the effects of 
the dress code changes but these 
by no means represent facts. 

For example "Should PBJC be 
allowed to become another San 
Francisco State". This is a ridicc- 
lous (sic) speculation on your 
part. How can one make a com- 
parison between the two institu- 
tions? San Francisco State is 1. 
a much larger University 2. Has 
many more enviromental (sic) 
elements such as origin of stu- 
dents, etc., 3. Is more politicly 
(sic) active, 4. subject matter and 
interest of students and faculty 
is much more varied, 5. the tur- 
• mcdl is not over something as tri- 
vial as an archaic dress code. 

Let's take the SGA public opin- 
ion poll of 'last term for our next 
example. True, fee Presid ent of 
Che SGA was partly at fault tor 
not releasing the results of this 
noil but it is also the media s re- 
sponsibility to seek out informa- 
tion and give it to the students. 
Sy Si 5U of the students by 
.^reWatives (sic) of the stu- 
dents should be made public no 
ma7te7 how insignificant you 
mjht feel the results are. It was 

your job as the news media of 
our campus to make these results 

In closing I would like to make 
one final point and inquiry. Two 
weeks ago the SGA voted on the 
dress code resolution. Why was'nt 
(sic) the result of this vote pre- 
sented to the students? 

I also invite you to prove your 
statement in this article "It 
should also be noted that there 
are a good number more state 
institutions 'that do have a dress 
code than do not." I invite you to 
prove that there are more state 
supported college institutions, that 
represents (sic) as many students 
as the -ones I mentioned in my 
last letter who have a dress code 
as strict as ours.

Socinf Clubs Ire 
A Popularity Hmen 


While the social clubs on cam- 
pus have contributed something 
to the school, there is little ques- 
tion that they are a social haven 
which harvests members desirous 
of a popularity they could not 
otherwise obtain. 

The general trend of student re- 
sponses to the student directory 
sale is in itself a testimonial to 
this fact. 

I find it difficult to believe 
that the student directory sale 
is a non-profit one, and that a 
club the size of Phi Da Di re- 
quired six months of steady 
work to compile it. 
Several people I talked to on 
campus complained of an error 
in the listing of their names, a 
series of unnecessary mistakes. 

It is no wonder there was an 
air of apathy among the students 
when the social club (s) expect 
the student to act in a manner 
toward which he has not been 
properly motivated. 

The real root of the problem 
is not a lack of enthusiasm on 
the part of the student body, but 
a deficiency in the overt be- 
havior on the part of the social

Comber Criticized 
hr Xmm' SGA 


During the past several weeks, 
it seems that all the BEACH- 
COMBER does is criticize, some- 
times quite irrationally, SGA. 

If, in your opinion, SGA is a 
"buried" organization, why not 
constructive criticism instead of 
blowing up petty quarrels be- 
tween individuals'' 

Both you and the student body 
seem to forget — YOU are the 
ones who elected these people. 

If you are so dissatisfied, why 
did you brilliant people not run 
for office, instead of the mere 
ten freshmen and 14 sopho- 
mores who filed? 
Whv don't you take advantage 
of programs SGA offers to bene- 
fit you' 

If there truly is a "dead and 
buried" Student Government, it 
is only because the. student body 
itself Is "dead and buried."

Relegated to the classical British eoinedv jypoot, the film 
is apt to open itself to fault and tedioiisness. Taken seri- 
ously though, "Joanna" seems to withstand the throes a bit 
bettei. Director Peter Same, perhaps, tailed t>> ghe a deli- 
cate combination of the two. 

Genevieve Waite. a South African bird .studying in 
London, is Joanna. Director Same should have stepped in 
to instruct, for Miss Waite falters. For anyone to vacil- 
late from well done Faye Dunaway to the duplicity of a 
gross hebephrenic, is just plain unnatural. 
The real find of "Joanna" is rather in the eu-starrmg 
roles. Glenna Forster- Jones as Ben! may well become the

to do something brave on the 
spur of the moment. 

There is a difference between 
heroes who impulsively do some- 
thing brave and those men who 
have to train for months or 
years for one flight. 

Today our attention is fo- 
cused on the space program and 
h'lerrhi c-Ury travel; but in 

earner times it would have 
been the Frai.Llins or the 
Wrights, tLey too can be con- 
sidered heroes. 

Though most people on the 
Earth, wished the crew of Apollo 
i well and were with them in 
pint, most would have turned 

down the chance to exchange 
places with them. 

This "breed of new Ameri- 
cans," is rare, and tributes 
should be extended to them for 
dieir contributions in develop- 
ing new technological advances 
in science, industry and educa- 
tion that has helped make 
America what it is todav. 
From the establishing of the 
National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration (NASA) more than 
a decade ago, President John 
Kennedy said, "We have to learn 
to sail on the new Ocean of 
Space." And sailing it we are— 
with great success!

consistency Causes Poor Season; 
Paters fall To Indian River, F32-63 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber Sporta Editor 

The Pacers just don't have it 
this year as the past week showed 
their inconsistency, defeating Mi- 
ami-Dade South 76-70, then being 
tromped 132-63 by Indian River, 
leaving their record at 7-13. 

The victory over MDS, how- 
ever, broke a six game losing 
atreak and according to coach 
Jim Tanner, "it was one of our 
better ball games." "The players 
wanted to win very badly. We 
got the best team effort outside 
of the first IRJC game." 

In that game Willie Gibson 
tied the school record with 33 
points and Earl Findley came 
close to tying his own rebound 
record with 25 — missing by 
only two. ( 

In contradiction to the MDS 
game, the IRJC encounter turned 
out to be a wild flurry for the

Pacer's Big Man 
Is A little 

February 19, 1969 Page 5 

by Tom Sherman 

'Coluber Sport 1 . Eclitur 

Every basketball team has its 
superstar — whether or not ,he's 
five-foot ten or six-foot ten— any 
way you look at it he's the big 

The Pacer's big man is some- 
what like a dauntless "Little Man 
On Campus" — Willie Gibson. 

Gibson, a mere 5' 8" 125 
pounds proved to everyone that 
there still is room for the little 
man in basketball. 

He came to PBJC on grant and 
aid as former Suncoast Confer- 
ence scoring leader from Seacrest 
High School. 

This season Gibson has come 
into his own as a college player. 
Starting out the season as a re- 
serve, he rias now battled his 
way to the starting lineup, and 
second high scorer on the team 
with a 12.0 average. 

Asked if he felt there was much 
difference between high school 
and college ball, Gibson replied, 
"I don't think there is that much 
difference. I can't drive as much 
as I used to ,but it is harder 
to shoot over the taller players." 

Gibson tied the school record 
of scoring in one game with 33 
points against Miami -Dade 
South February 7, held by Earl 
Findley. In the last three games 
he has scored 70 points. 

Coach Jim Tanner commented 
that he felt Gibson was doing a 
fine job this season. "I feel Willie 
has done a real good job for us. 
Coming in as a Seacrest spark- 
plug and playing a different style 
of ball, he has adjusted real well. 
He has had trouble shooting over 
the bigger guards. However, 1 
still think he has done an out- 
standing job for us." 

Questioned on how he felt about 
sitting out most of the games 


Pacers little giant 

earlier this season, Gibson said, 
"I lost my confidence. Being 
able to play all the time in high 
school, and not starting here 
made me lose my confidence." 

Tanner also commented on 
Gibson's overall play this year. 
"He has been the most con- 
sistent player in getting the ball 
down court against the press. 
If I were to assess Willie's 
overall abilities this year, I 
would say he has done an ex- 
cellent job. He has shot well 
and played good defense." 

It appears that this season 
Gibson has continued doing the 
thing he does best — scoring 
points and has proven that it 
doesn't take a six-foot ten giant

The Women's Tennis Team re- 
ceived a heavy thrashing from 
Miami - Dade South last Thurs- 
day — losing every match played. 

One bright point, however, is 
the fact that the Pacers won 
more games agamst MDS than 
they ever have before. 

Despite the loss, Coach Bobbie 
Knowles was pleased with the in- 
dividual play of Alene Westgate 
and the number two doubles team 
of Gail Marctim and Kathy Pat- 
rick, who split one game. 

Prior to Fridays encounter with

Participating in the first inter-

Playable Tennis Courts 
Lacking At PBJC Campus 

by Jim Scruggs 

'Comber Staff Writer 

With the exception of one school 
which recently moved to new ac- 
commodations, PBJC is the only 
Junior College which does not 
support its own tennis courts. 

The hard surface courts' to the 
north of the gymnasium were not 
built with tennis in mind, it was 
learned from Coaoh Harris Mc- 
Girt, 'the men's tennis instructor. 
They were not constructed any 
larger because originally they 
were merely utility facilities for 

When they were finally con- 
verted to tennis courts, it was 
necessary for McGirt and others 
to paint on lines by hand be- 
fore instruction could begin. 
While ideal for instructional 
urposes, these courts come no- 
ihere near meeting the require- 
lents for regulation play, being 
jqo small and of too rough a sur- 
face texture. 

When asked if there would be 
any advantage in having tennis 

facilities, McGirt's answer was an 
immediate, resounding "yes;" at 
present practice and home games 
are conducted at Boynton. 

Why doesn't PBJC have tennis 
courts? McGirt didn't know. 

Coach Ray IDaugherty, the ath- 
letic director for the college, sup- 
plied 'the answer. 

Funds are the key, according 
to Daugherty. 

"At present, the necessary 
funds are not available." This 
is due to the previous alloca- 
tion of money for the new base- 
ball field to the south of the 
gymnasium and the two athletic 
fields to tlie west, in addition 
to the new addition to the gym 

This is not to say that there 
is not a desire for these courts. 
"Tennis courts are of top pri- 
ority, If the needed money can 
be obtained it is hoped that by 
next year the facilities will be 
in operation. But— this remains 
to be seen."

Tennis Prospects look Bright 
Although Competition Is Tough 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber Sports Editor 
According to tennis coach Har- 
ris McGirt, this season has all 
indications of surpassing last 
year's highly successful venture. 
"It's going to be a tough sea- 
son," commented McGirt, "We 
have a tougher schedule than the 
previous years, but I think we'll 
better last years 12-3 record." 

Rough competition isn't the only 
obstacle blocking the Pacers path 
to success. 

This year's tennis team con- 
sists of all newcomers in inter- 
collegiate competition. Last sea- 
son, the team, comprised of 
graduating sophomores, finished 
third in the state. 

McGirt also feels that this 
year's team is the best ever at 
PBJC. "I feel this is the best 
team, man-for-man, we have ever 
had, and depth will probably be 
our strongest point." 

David Chambliss is the only re- 
turning sophomore from last 
year's team. The Vero Beach 
grad should help form the nucleus 
of the.netters. 

The man to watch, however, 
is Walter Powers. A graduate 
of John I. Leonard High School, 
Powers is ranked seventh in

The bulk of the team is unde- 
cided in their playing order Mc- 
Girt said, From Lake Worth

Don Dickey, Pahokee — Richard 
Browning, Seacrest — Ron Mack 
lin, and from Akron, New York- 
Doug Remington. 

All are fine prospects ad 
should aid the Pacers to another 
fine season. 

McGirt also said that Miami- 
Dade North and South, along 
with Central Florida (who won 
the National Championship las! 
year) should be seeded as their 
toughest opponents. 
Opening game for the Pacers is 
against Edison, February 28.

A total of 81 per cent of the 
students asked favored a change 
in the present dress policy accord- 
ing to a poll recently conducted 
by the SGA in order to determine 
student opinion to present and 
proposed dress code regulations. 
Changes favored by over 50 per 
cent of the students are the al- 
lowance of neatly trimmed mous- 
taches, long side burns, bermuda 
shorts for men in the spring se- 
mester, and shorts and slacks for 
women during the spring semes- 

Two hundred and twenty-eight 
students from ten classrooms in- 
cluding Physical Science, State 
and Local Government, Data 
Processing, Linear Algebra, and 
Band were questioned as to their 
views on the present dress regu- 
lations and what they would con- 
sider appropriate and up to date 

According to SGA pre$ident 
Rodney Smith, "This was the 
most comprehensive poll the SGA 
has ever taken." "We tried to 
arrange it so that students from 
all areas would be able to state 
their opinions. I think the results 
are indicative of the true "dress" 
feeling here on campus." 

The third question in the poll 
listed proposed changes and asked 
for yes or no opinions. 

Proposed changes included to- 
tal abolishment of dress code re- 
strictions—favored by 25 per cent,

Academic Revision 

Smith Proposes Plan 

by Rodney Smith 

SGA President 

The latest, and perhaps most 
important, area of endeavor by 
SGA is in the unprecedental area 
of educational reform. 

I have proposed, after much 
contemplation and deliberation, a 
six-ipoint plan of action for im- 
proving the educational atmos- 
phere of this college. 

Point one is that there shall be 
a day-time accredited course in 
Afro-American culture and his- 

The problems of rabid misun- 
derstanding can best be solved 
through 'the perpetuation of learn- 
ing. We cannot solve what we 
remain ignorant about. 

Point two states that no student 
shall be forced to pay the stu- 
dent activity fee because he is 
a twelve hour night student. 

Night students often have little 
time for campus activities, and 
less money to spend on someone 

Point three encourages the es- 
tablishment of a mandatory, 
school -wide teacher - evaluation 

The student deserves to evalu- 
ate how the teacher has present- 
ed subject matter. 

Point four, five and six deal 
with curriculum alterations and 

First, I feel that we need es- 
tablished an honors program, as 
now exists in the Communications 
department, in the other areas of 
the school. The placement of stu- 
dents in these courses should be 
based on past academic records 
and college accepted test scores. 

Secondly, students who have de- 
cided their area of major and 
have maintained a 3.2 average in 
the basic courses of this area, 
should be placed into an excel- 
lerated seminar type of class- 

The reason for this is to pre- 
pare the better student for the 
trauma of transfer, and give him 
a stronger background in his ma- 

The last point and the most 
poignant is that students taking 
the natural sciences or social sci 
ences for graduation only, should 
be placed in separate courses than 
those who are taking them as in- 
troductory courses for this ma- 

Why should music majors and 
Biology majors take the same 
course? The mathematics depart- 
ment has developed a transfer- 
able survey course, MS 106. I 


. . . "Six point plan" 

hope other departments follow 

A class segregation based on 
achievement and interest is ad- 
vantageous to instructor and stu- 
dent, alike. 

It is my hope that, although the 
problems are difficult many, stu- 
dents and instructorrs will help 
in the passage of this legislation, 
that the administration will take 
subsequent appropriate action. 

We are all interested in up- 
grading the educational aspects of 
the college and here is the gen- 
esis of such a program.

Keep The Ball Rolling 

The Social Science Department has again "started the 
ball rolling" with a colloquiem series, by sponsoring Dr. James 
Dooling Ill's talk on "Food and Poison." 

The Social Science Department initiated the series last 
year with hopes that it would spread to other campus educa- 
tional departments. 

To date, not one other department has attempted to pre- 
sent such a discussion program. 

We feel there is a need for such colloquiums, as was 
proven by the outstanding attendance figures at the meetings, 

Topics such as book reviews, discussions of advertising 
techniques, art critiques, and scientific progress in the twen- 
tieth century could easily be presented. 

Other departments should follow in the steps of the 
Social Science Department and "keep the ball rolling." 

Voice Of The Readers 

FJC Week: Campus Hit Peak 


PBJC was at its highest peak 
of the term as it celebrated Flor- 
ida Junior College Week last 

I must congratulate all the serv- 
ice clubs and other organizations 
that displayed their fine projects 
that were in SAC. The cafeteria, 
for once, did a little extra out 
f the ordinary in decorating our 
bles with the school colors. 

They also added some spice 
oring to the food too, which 
s a relief to see from the nor- 
il plain food on display. 

■towever, I was quite disap- 

>inted in the small number of 

rofessors who showed up to get 

icquainted at the student-faculty 

coffee. I would like to know why? 

Certainly not all teachers had 

classes at this time. 

I was more-over disappointed 

y the number of students that 

(tended this coffee. We have 

Jrne 4,000 day students and only 

about 300 (if that many) came 

to the coffee gathering and took 

notice of the displays in SAC. 

College is not just a place to 
go to class and get a grade. It 
is an institution by which stu- 
dents should become socially in- 
volved as well as academically.

PhiDaDi Pleased 
At Ball Attendance 


The Brothers of Phi Da Di 
would like to express their ap- 
preciation to all of those who at- 
tended the Sweetheart Ball. A 
•good time was enjoyed by all. 

And those of you who did not 
attend, don't worry, we spent

this affair.

Perform letter - Known Floys 


When the warning lights flashed 
announcing curtain time for the 
drama department's latest en- 

deavor, "Royal Roulette," I was 
ait best skeptical. 

Like the majority of students I 
was not overflowing with anticipa- 

Student Freedom," at least on 
the college campus level, begins 
with the basic human right to be 
one's self and not an artificial 
personality as defined from a 
higher authority such as a college 
administration, or pressures of 
any group. 

With the .right to be an indi- 
vidual instead of a sterotyped unit 
go certain responsibilities, of 

The first and most paramount 
of these responsibilities is the 
recognition of the rights of others 
to be individuals and the right of 
"government" as represented by 
a school administration to have 
certain defined and explicit au- 
thority over areas which deal with 
the institution's operation. 

The problem today, however, 
has boiled down to where does 
the right of the student's individu- 
ality end and the right of au- 
thority begin. 

The whole question revolves 
around the willingness of both 
the student as an individual and 
the administration as an authority 
to provide the most open and 
unencumbered fields as possible 
in which to pursue the goals of 
higher and wider educational hori- 

This, of course, requires the re- 
straint and vision of both parties. 
In recent times, the disruptive 
events at many colleges and uni- 
versities have proved this ques- 
tion has not been resolved. 

Instead of a cooperative atti- 
tude between students and au- 
thority with genuine concern on 
the part of both sides to reason 
together over differences of opin- 
ion as to what constitutes who's 
right, we have an almost uni- 
versal desire to protest and dis- 
agree about anything— even if it 
has to be invented by one side 
or the other! 

It appears that the rationality 
of one side to uphold its respon- 
sibilities to the other side has 
been discarded for disorder and 
disagreement at any cost! 

This phenomenon on our cam- 
puses has been perpetrated by 
the few who are irresponsible on 
the many who are unconcerned 
about their responsibilities, thus 
a minority tail is wagging the 
majority dog 'because the ma- 
jority dog usually doesn't care un- 
til it is too late! 

The result is .the goal of ex- 
panded knowledge going up in 
fire and smoke as a sacrifice to 
the gods of mass hysteria, mass 
involvement, mass destruction 
and mass resignation to the death 
of individuality. 

Reason has long ago fled the

Have the collective individuals 
which make up a campus, the 
students, faculty, staffs and ad- 
ministrators died — doomed to 
become only an undistinguished 
human mass? 

Today, it appears that many 
campuses are scenes of contem- 
porary paradox which is sad to 
see in our day of human aware-

It is time for the college stu- 
dent to stand on his own two

from society by discharging his 
responsibilities to society with

Yet when I left the play I Sow 
that once again the drama de-

With this in mind, a questics 
arises. If the drama departmert 
can take a poor play and make 
it exciting, why can't they take

Through such atrocities as "Af-

and the shortened "Royal Gar*

placed an unnecessary burden «s

Those of us who remember

whom? I don't think it is for thos 
of us who sit in the audience. 

With the exception of the mis- 
nomers entitled senior-class plays, 
this college is our first introduc- 
tion to the educational tiieatre. 

The productions should give 
the student a well-rounded appre 
ciation of the theatre, in all ft 
many glories. 

We need not only Arthur MM 
ler, avant-garde or unknown pro 
duotions, but also a. Shakespeare, 
Shaw or a musical production. 

Although I loved ithe play as I 
love all plays, there are, fxw 
ever, some people who do net 
like all plays and the recent ones 
presented here have only aggra 
vated that infection. 

I hope that the drama depart

outstanding job, with more «E 
known plays and varied styles.

SDS Motto: From Protest To Resistance 

by Jacquie Boiling 

'Comber Staff Writer 

"'We are the people of this gen- 
eration, bred in at least modest 
comfort, housed now in univer- 
sities, looking uncomfortably to 
the world we inherit" 

This is the founding statement 
of the Students for a Democratic 
Society, a radical New Left group 
which is now active on many U. S. 
college campuses. 

SDS was founded in Port Huron, 

Michigan on June 11, 1962 and 
participants were limited to 59 
persons representing 11 colleges. 

The Civil Rights movement was 
its prime concern. 

"The members wanted action, 
not discussions," said Carl Ogles- 
by, SDS national president in 1965 
and 1966. 

They organized Northern ghetto 
dwellers in such projects as "Chi- 
cago's Jobs or Income Now

Carl Davidson Outlines Tactics 
To Achieve Student Syndicalism 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

It was freshman orientation day 
at one of the big ten universities. 

The administration had com- 
pleted its program. 

On the other side of the cam- 
pus a similar program was being 
conducted by another organiza- 

"This is the office of the presi- 
dent," explained the director, 
"note the 4 inch thick bullet proof 
window. If the office is locked 
during a siege of the building this 
is tow you break in. . ." 

The organization — Students for 
a Democratic Society, their pur- 
pose — to make the university 
system free. 

Opposed to the "fundamental 
contradictions" of the present uni- 
versity system, SDS National Sec- 
retary Carl Davidson states, "we 
need to organize, to build a move- 
ment on the campuses with the 
primary purpose of radically 
transforming the university com- 

Their ultimate goal — partici- 
patory democracy as put forth in 
the Port Huron Statement (the 
organization's manifesto) urges a 
new "democracy of individual 
participation wihere each person 
shares in the social decisions de- 
termining the quality and direc- 
tion of his life. 

According to Davidson if a 
young man is required to fight 
in Vietnam, then participatory 
democracy says he should have 
the power to help shape draft 
laws and war policy. 

To achieve their goal, David- 
son in an article entitled "Toward 
Student Syndicalism" (published 
in the organization's official pub- 
lication, NEW LEFT NOTES) 
proposes an active plan of re- 

He suggests: 

1. Every SDS chapter should 
organize a student syndicalist 
movement on its campus. 

By a syndicalist movement, Da- 
vidson means movement working 
for "student control" not a move- 
ment that helps a "paternal ad- 
ministration make better rules for 

"What we want is a union of 
students where the students them- 
selves decided what kind of rules 
they want or don't want. Or 
whether they need any rules at 

2. Organize a Campus Freedom 
Democratic Party (CFDP) or a 
Free Student Union (FSU). 

The CFDP's function is to ha- 
rass student government meetings 
(usually done by showing up en 
masse and singing the Mickey 
Mouse Club theme) and to ul- 
timately win a majority of seats 
in the SG elections. 

While in office, Davidson says, 
"the CFDP should push through 
a list of demands. If the demands 
are not met, it should then 
promptly abolish SG and begin 
mass demonstrations, sit-ins and 
boycotts of all classes." 

FSU's function is to create a 
rival student government that 
would eventually "embrace a 
healthy majority of the student 

After it gains control, it should 
"declare the student government 
defunct and present its demands 
to the administration and if re- 
fused it should declare a general 

Davidson also pointed out that 
in some cases it may become nec- 
essary to ship busloads of stu- 
dents to striking camupses where 
replacements are needed as a re- 
sult of mass arrests. 

3. Adopt as its primary and 
central issue, the abolition of the 
grade system. 

Davidson considers grades as 
the direct cause of most student 
anxieties and frustrations. 

He further adds, without 
grades, "the Selective Service 
would have a hell of a time rank- 
ing us." 

4. Finally incorporate as a sec- 
racy, which can be viewed- as an 
ondary issue participating democ- 
attempt to "sabotage the knowl- 
edge factory." 

Proposed action includes: 

• Approach students in teach- 
er colleges with counter-curricula 
based on the ideas of Paul Good- 
man and A. S. Neil for the radi- 
cal education of children. 

• At the beginning of -the term, 
request or demand of the prof 
that students participate in the 
forming of the structure, format 
and content of that course. 

• Sign up for, attend, de- 
nounce and then walkout of and 
picket excessively large classes. 

• Hold mock trials for the 
Dean of Men and Dean of Women 
for the "crimes against human-

disease. Once caught it perme- 
ates one's whole life and the lives 
of those around us."

SDS has been described by FBI 
director J. Edgar Hoover as "hat- 
ing almost every aspect of Amer- 
ican life, and dedicated to a pro- 
gram of obstruction and disrup- 
tion of authority." 

The main catalyist in SDS 
thinking is against what they call 
the "imperialist" Vietnam war. 

"The war has served as a vehi- 
cle for recognition of the larger 
problems of American society," 
states Eric Bohman, president of 
the Smith-Amherst SDS. 

SDS also protests against the 
Selective Service System, and 
anything else that supports the 
war, and the Dow Chemical Com- 
pany, which makes napalm. 

Opposition to the "hierarchy" 
that controls higher education in 
the United States is another balk. 

National headquarters for SDS 
is a pair of drab rooms above the 
Chicken House restaurant on Chi- 

cago's sleazy West Madison 
Street. Regional offices are locat- 
ed in Washington, New York, 
Boston, Los Angeles and Madi- 

The organization's highest es- 
chelon consists of the -three na- 
tional secretaries elected annual- 
ly. They, with eight other offi- 
cers conduct affairs between an- 
nual conventions. 

The national budget is about 
$90,000: one third comes from 
subscriptions: the rest from small 
contributions. The skeleton staff 
employed subsists on about fifteen 
dollars per week. 

A slogan recently adopted by 
SDS is "from protest to resist- 
ance." Some activists claim the 
aim is nothing less than the re- 
making of U. S. society. 

"Our goal," says Michael Spie- 
gel, SDS National Secretary and 
Harvard dropout, "is, not to cre- 
ate a free university in an unfree 
society. Our goal is to create a 
free society." 

SDS College Orientated 

Its Goal - To Liberate Society 

by Larry Krasulak 

'Comber Staff Writer 

What is the SDS? 

Actually, as a movement it is 
hard to define. Most of the par- 
ticipants in SDS activities are col- 
lege students — many of its ac- 
tual members are not. It is pre- 
dominantly a college-age move- 
ment found in ithe college and uni- 
versity community — but not ex- 

Besides undergraduates, SDS 
contains a wide assortment of oth- 
er participants such as college 
faculty members (mostly young), 
graduate students, writers, "intel- 
lectuals" of various types, ex- 
students who are still "hanging 


In the words of J. Edgar Hoo- 
ver, "Here is the paradox of the 
New Left and the SDS. Many of 
the New Leftist and SDS mem- 
bers are mere intellectual tramps 
who seek the exotic and eccentric 
as emotional outlets; but some, 
in one way or another, are seri- 
ously searching — not only for 
an answer to society's problems, 
but for values of human exist- 
ence in a world of great uncer- 

To say that the SDS is a po- 
litical party or a tightly disci- 
plined organization is to miss its 
true identity. Rather, the SDS is 
a mood, a philosophy of life, a 
way of looking at self, country 

in depth* Study 

around" the campus, curiosity- 
seekers and some Communists. 

According to SDS national sec- 
retary Cart Davidson, "We have 
within our ranks Communists of 
both varieties (Sino and Soviet), 
socialists of all sorts, three or 
four different kinds of anarchists, 
anarcho-syndicalists, syndicalist, 
social democrats, humanists lib- 
erals, a growing number of liber- 
tarian laisse-faire capitalist, and 
of course, the articulate vanguard 
of the psychedelic liberation 

In this amalgamation is found 
a great deal of nonsensical chat- 
ter. There is also serious conver- 
sation by some highly motivated 
and articulate young people seek- 
ing to understand the vital prob- 
lems facing our nation today, 
such as poverty, civil rights, 
world peace, automation; the stu- 
dents role on the university cam- 
pus, human dignity in a rapidly 
developing urban and industrial 

and the universe! In this mood 
lies its tragedy — and its danger! 

The SDS's mood and philosophy 
of life — is not one of support 
for America and its traditions, of 
upholding moral and democratic 

Instead, it is one of defiance, 
hostility and opposition to the free 
society of this country. It seeks 
to destroy, not to' build. 

Its whole approach is one of 
negativism — • to criticize, belittle, 
degenerate the principles on 
which the nation was built. 

Cynicism, pessimism and cal- 
lousness are its mottoes. At its 
heart the SDS is nihilitic and an- 
archistic. To analyze the SDS is 
to become suddenly aware of the 
nihilistic wasteland it produces. 

Basic to the SDS's mood is the 
idea that contemporary American 
society (contemptuously called the 
"Establishment") is corrupt, evil 
and malignant — and must be 

To reform society, to change it 
for the better, is impossible in 
the eyes of the SDS. It must be 
liquidated as the only solution. 

For this reason the SDS takes 
great delight in their tactics of 
showing scornful disdain for opin- 
ions with which they disagree 
(the SDS at heart is extremely 
totalitarian, intolerant and opin- 
ionated in nature). 

They urge resistance to the 
draft (even on occasion try to 
interfere physically with the le- 
gitimate activities of armed-serv- 
ices personal on college campuses 
present for the purpose of recruit- 
ing), burn or mutilate draft 
cards, endeavor to dictate to uni- 
versity administrative officials 
how these institutions should be 

The SDS has little appreciation 
of and respect for history or for 
the accumulated heritage and wis- 
dom of former years. By reject- 
ing the past, they lack a clear 
view of the future. 

Their chief aim, despite their 
protestations to the contrary, is 
to destroy, annihilate, and tear 

Their heros are Castro, Ohe 
Guevara, Mao Tse-Tung, Ho Chi 
Minh, or whoever they believe is 
a fighter (preferably the romantic 
guerrilla type) against the "status 
quo" capitalist nation of America! 

How does the SDS propose to 
destroy the "decadent" society in 
which we live? 

The mood of the SDS toward 
"creative disruption" in the past 
has been reflected in various tac- 
tics of protest such as demonstra- 
tions, sit-ins and petition cam- 

But the mood of the SDS pro- 
test, is now giving way to one 
of resistance. 

This is one of the tragedies of 
any movement of protest that re- 
fuses to find an outlet through 
legitimate channels of society and 
in cooperation with other groups- 
it moves to more radical, extreme 
and bitter positions.

Athletic Department 'Can't Get Together' 

About a month ago, James Arpin, a member 
of the PBJC baseball team, chased after a fly 
ball in right field and smashed into the fence at 
full ^peed, 

Arpin was not badly injured, but was as he put 
it "just pretty sore." 

A warning track might have avoided this acci- 

The baseball field itself had just 'been completely 
renovated prior to opening game and notice was 
taken of the lack of a warning track. 

According to Athletic Director Ray Daugherty 
the cost of the renovation was in excess of $10,000 
and that "a warning track would be installed as 
soon as we can get the maintenance." 

Baseball Coach Mel Edgerton commented that 
he was not worried too much about a warning 
track, but stressed the need to build up the infield 
as the mound is 'low and there is a lack of dirt. 

"There is an element of risk in anything," said 
Edgerton, "a player could easily slip in the warn- 
ing track. What we need Is to have the infield 
built up." 

It appears that the Athletic Department cannot 
get together. 

After this reporter inquired about the warning

track, a reasonable facsimile of one was installed 
before the next game. 

Daugherty also answered in response to the ques- 
tion of trees in center field. 

"We asked that the Australian Pines completely 
surround the outfield merely for background." 

As a result trees were planted of which even 
Daugherty himself doesn't know the name. 

"We recommend one thing and get another." 

There is an answer to all this, namely— funds. 
With the renovation of the field, a great deal of 
money was spent, and things must be taken one 
step at a time. 

Hopefully, dugouts will be installed, for if they 
aren't, it is very easy for a player to catch a foul 
ball in the head. Then more than just funds would 
be needed, namely — prayers. 

If one looks at a PBJC basketball schedule, he'll 
notice it specifies the school colors of "green and 

With the result of this season, the colors should, 
perhaps be changed to "black and blue." 

Many college coaches had termed the Pacers as 
"the team to beat" this year, and that they had 
the most potential of any team in the state. 

The Pacers however, did not live up to their 
expectations, and as a result, completed the sea- 
son with seven wins against fifteen losses and a 
three-nine record in their division. 

Throughout their season, they held as much as 
a sixteen point lead in various games only to have 
it diminish in the waning moments of play. 

Lack of cohesion, dissention, not being in shape, 
being optimistic, falling apart in the crucial mo- 
ments and unorthodox game strategy could be sum- 
med up as the reasons for the Pacers "letting 
the air out of the balloon." 

The Pacers performed as a losing team — looking 
good at times and bad the rest. 

However, whatever the reason may be for their 
downfall, 'Coach Jim Tanner is without doubt, the

McGirt was quick to stress the

of the two short plays, did an 
excellent job in her portrayal of 
the proud and stubborn girl. 'Her 
understanding of the struggle 
within the plot was evident as she 
brought the character to life. 

Since the story is that of a 
king study and the tyranny to 
which lie succumbs, attention 
must be paid to his part. 

Gig Kramer was well-cast as 
Crean, King of Thebes. From 
the moment of his Introduction to 
the audience, his authority and 
will were inevitable. His tragedy 
was the costliest of all. 

The audience reaction to King 
Morrison's performance as the 
first guard was of a humorous 
nature. It provided a type of re- 
lief from the highly emotional 

Had some laughter not been in- 
terspersed, a very uneasy audi- 
ence would have faced the inter- 
mission, so intense was the trag- 

Then a double cast took the 
stage to present "Henry VIII," 
an adaptation of Hermann Gres- 
sieker's "Royal Gambit." The use 
of a "regular" cast on stage, and 
a "ghost" cast of dancers pro- 
vided the play-goer with an ex- 
citing new aspect of theatre in 
this area. 

John Schneider's portrayal of 
Henry VIII was both amusing and 
moving. The onlooker saw in Mm 
modern man and a famous king 
of English history. The actor car- 
ried the aitdlence very well and 
left no one disappointed. 

As to the six wives of Henry, 
each actress did a fine job in 
her respective role. Each seemed 
to have been "'born" for her 
part, both in characterization 
and in physical appearance. 

Connie Middleton, who played 
Henry's German wife Anne of 

Cleves, had a definite raport with 
the audience. Her role was quite 
comical and yet somewhat sad 

Anne Boleyn, portrayed by 
Laura Lee Athey, was the haugh- 
tiest of the king's six wives. Jane 
Seymore, whose part was taken 
by Janis Spadaeene, was perhaps 
the most quiet. 

Lindy Zellner created a realistic 
image of the wife, Kathryn How- 
ard. Katarina of Aragon and Kate 
Parr, played by Bobbie Ohuilli 
and Peg Joyner respectively, 
were Henry's lasting wives. 

The costume design of "Henry 
VIII" was superb, in color and 
mood. Each costume "fit" its in- 
dividual character. 

The "ghost" cast of dancers, 
under the direction of Mrs. Lou 
Meyer, performed an excelled 
modern interpretation of the 
theme of the play. 

Special commendation shou!S 
go to the lighting crew for their 
job well done in what was tfce 
most technically complex produc- 
tion in lighting to have been see: 
on campus. The special effects, t 
such as the live music, are als 
to be commended. The entire pre

Registration Extended 
Into A Drop-Add Week 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber News Editor 

The Registration Committee, 
concerned over the confusion and 
problems created by the exten- 
sion of registration into a "drop 
and add week", and realizing .that 
there aire still valid reasons for 
schedule; changes, Ms announced 
a new schedule correction proce- 
dure to be initiated in Spring 
Term I. 

The new procedure does not 
recognize any complaints or re- 
quests for instructor changes after 
registration has been completed. 
There will be, however, facilities 
maintained for the week follow- 
ing} registration to correct sched- 
ule conflicts not eliminated by pre- 
vious machine and manual checks. 

IFor the spring term, the dates 
of May 9 through 12 have been 
as.9i.gned for schedule correction. 
Those conflicts necessitating cor- 
reotion are class drops, course 
conflicts, multiple schedule, 
courses cancelled, additions to 
schedules and withdrawals from 

school. ...

to employ the student center for

•Comber Associate Editor 

After long hours of dissention 
among students, two dress code 
committee meetings, and many at- 
tempts at legislation, the Student 
Senate passed a resolution Tues- 
day recommending, a change in 
the present dress code policy. 

The resolution advocates the al- 
lowance of long sideburns, shorts 
and slacks for men and women 
during the spring terms, and 
shorts and slacks in the PBJC 
library after 6:00 p.m. 

The proposed changes are now 
to be sent to the Faculty Senate 
for consideration. 

If passed, these changes would 
go into effect for 1969-1970 school 


The actual presentation of this 
resolution to the student senate 
is a direct result of the dress 
code committee meetings. 

This committee is composed of 
the three deans of student person- 
nel and members of the student 
government; Ed DeBellevue, Bill 
Wilkerson, and Karen Moore. 

When this committee was 
formed, through a resolution 
passed by the SGA Senate, it was 
hoped that they could create a 
joint SGA-Student Personnel state- 
ment pn the revision of the dress 
code. This statement would then 

scheduling corrections. This elim- 
inates the long lines and gives the 
students a place to wait without 
standing in interminal lines. 

Students pick up official class 
schedules in the South SAC area 
and report to the clerical offices 
in the North SAC for correction. 
Those seeking drops or changes 
because of conflicts where all 
other sections of the course are 
closed must seek the approval of 
their department head before 
making changes in the North 

"It is hoped that these new pro- 
cedures will make it easier for 
these students to make the neces- 
sary corrections and still not des- 
troy the counseling they have 
had," the committee reports. 

Students will still have the op- 
portunity to change classes for in- 
structor preference or to reject 
their entire schedule before regis- 
tration. The addition of the man- 
ual check at this .time, in addition 
to the regular machine check, is 
also intended to decrease the num- 
ber of corrections necessary the 
following week. 

be sent to the student and faculty 
senate for consideration. 

This plan was shown to be in- 
feasible when the Deans of Stu- 
dent Personnel issued a written 
memorandum stating that they 
supported the present dress code 
and would favor no change. 

From then on all hopes of cre- 
ating a joint system were crushed. 
At this point, Ed DeBellevue, a 
student member of the committee, 
in conjunction with SGA presi- 
dent Rodney Smith, conducted a 
poll as to the students opinions 
of present dress standards. 

The poll determined that 81% of 
those questioned favored a change 
in the present policy. 

Those changes receiving more 
than 50% of the vote were the 
allowance of: long sideburns, 
shorts and slacks for men and 
women during the spring terms, 
and the continuing allowance of 
neatly trimmed moustaches. 

Taking mto consideration the re- 
sults of the poll, talks with the 
faculty and area businessmen, the 
policies of other junior colleges, 
and the feasibility of changes, 
the students on the dress code 
committee proposed the resolu-

Circle K Club of PBJC was 
named as the number one club 
in the state at their recent con- 
vention in Cocoa Beach. 

Thirty-four campus members 
attended the Florida District Cir- 
cle K Convention which saw the 
club garner 1,000 out of a possible 
1,350 points as well as have a 
member elected to a district of- 

Sophomore Bill Wilkerson, and 
past president, was elected sec- 
retary of the Florida District 

The PBJC club placed in every 
event it entered. 

It was awarded first place in 
cumulative service, second place 
in the single service project cate- 
gory, second place on its scrap- 
book, third place in the inter- 
club category, and third place on 
Its newsletter. 

In addition, Richard Torde was 

awarded first place as the best 
secretary in the state. Jim Moon 
was elected the man of the year. 
In the oratory contest Paul 
Buxton placed second in the state. 
This is the first time that any 
club has been number one in the 
state more than one time. The 
PBJC club received this honor 
in 1965-1966 under the presidency 
of Ken Nemeth. 

SGA helped Circle K to finance 
their attendance at the conven- 
tion. This was done after several 
controversial weeks of argument 
over whether or not to award ar- 
ete K one hundred and eighty- 
three dollars to help defray ex- 
pense costs. 

The bill finally was passed, al- 
ter the senate overrode Pjw*"* 
Rodney Smith's veto, and Circle 
K wound up with the largest con- 
vention delegation. 

Final vote on the resolution 
showed eighteen in favor of, one 
against, and one abstention.

Comber Concepts 


Exist For The Student 

The BEACHCOMBER has been informed— via telephone 
message from Athletic Director Ray Daugherty, that neither 
he nor his staff will no longer cooperate with BEACH- 
COMBER reporters. 

His reasons for the boycott presumably stem from an 
article published in the March 10 issue of the 'Comber, in 
which a sports reporter pointed out a difference of opinion 
in reference to needs related to the recently completed base- 
ball field. 

Reliable sources have informed us that he has also re- 
layed his displeasure (again by telephone) to a local daily 
newspaper concerning their coverage of PBJC athletics. 

His decree could have serious repercussions to a worth- 
while student funded program if members of his staff were 
to carrry out his orders. 

We have learned that Mr. Daugherty did not consult 
his staff concerning this policy, nor did it represent their 

We would like to point out that the PBJC athletic depart- 
ment in its present situation needs publicity, not only from the 
Beachcomber but also from the outside press. 

The Beachcomber is committed to express the voice of 
the students, for we, like the athletic program, are funded 
by student fees. 

It is our thinking that the Beachcomber, the athletic 
department and all student funded programs should exist 
for the students and not because of them. 

Campus Combings 

Tutors Offered 

Phi Theta Kappa, the national 
junior college honorary scholastic 
society, is promoting good scholar- 
ship at BPJC by offering free 
tutoring service in various sub- 
jects to all students who are in- 
terested in improving their grades. 

Almosl every subject is cov- 
ered by the program. Some of 
these are foreign languages, so- 
cial sciences, math, music, data 
processing, and creative writing 

Students who wish to receive help 
should check the list of courses 
and tutors that are posted in 
the library, in the guidance office, 

and in the SAC lounge. He then 
should call a tutor of the subject 
in which he needs help and ar- 
range a meeting that will be con- 
venient to both parties.

Former Businessman Advocate 
Present Dress Policy At PBJC 


Allow me to take die trouble to 
write your "Voice of the Read- 
ers" and say that there should 
not be any remarks made about 
your dress code. 

It is probably one of the nicest 
assets you will have in the two 
important years you will spend 
at PBJC. . . 

The attractive appearance of 
your school and the student body 
is apparent to any visitor. You 
up-grade yourselves. 

It is certain that you want to 
raise your personal standards. Of 
the few who do not, let it be 
said: just don't associate with 

There are always two or more 
kinds of people. 

In the past year I have visited 
quite a few colleges including 
Montana State at Bozeman, Wash- 
ington State at Seattle, William 
and Mary, Princeton and Arizona. 

All the students try to dress 
well. The hippies are out. 

The answer is "We don't associ- 
ate with them." 

Don't be foolish and believe in 
"class " Do not let them lower 
you to their own level. 

Over 5,000 years ago clothing 
ceased to be mere environmental 
protection and became adornment. 
Adornment is one of the main 
functions of clothing. The wildest 
people adorn themselves. 

The human body is usually not 
a thing of beauty by itself unless 
it is cultivated and dressed up. 
Remember that beauty is loved 
and gets more in this world than 

Before becoming a busy retiree, 
I had been in some of the tough- 
est competitive sections of the 
business field and know from ex- 
perience that you never go wrong 
looking your best.

helps your inner self rise aLwe

Most of us that know don't be- 
lieve in the "class struggle" be- 
cause we know that nobody builds 
themselves up by tearing down 
somebody else. 

It's joining the crowd and work- 
ing together that get us the things 

we need in life. 
It is undoubtedly the best r_ 

to dress well, look well and k

Let High School Studenl 
Be Permitted At Dance 


We the Brothers Alpha Phi have 
an obligation to the school and 
the community to carry out our 
pledge of supplying two scholar- 
ships of $125.00 per semester. One 
through public solicitation to 
merchants of the county by the 
members of Alpha Phi, and one 
through our annual scholarship 
dance, which is through donation 
only from participants. 

These scholarships go to any 
graduation sophomore according 
to need and scholastic standing. 
These scholarships do not go to 
any brother or relative of any 
member past or present. 

We hope that you realize the 
appreciative value of these schol- 
arships to the people who need 

Without these scholarships these 
students may not continue their 
education because they are not 
financially able. 

The primary purpose of our an- 
nual scholarship dance is to raise 
the second scholarship — the only 
possible way for this to be ac- 
complished is by donations at the 
door by the people who come 
to the dance. It seems that school

Prepares Students For Higher Moth Courses 

Lab Installed To Prevent Math Dropouts 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber News Editor 
Hoping to cut down on the num- 
ber of people who fail or drop 
from Math courses as a result of 
discouragement or a deficiency in 
math, the Mathematics depart- 
ment has augmented a Math Lab- 
oratory and remedial course to 
go into effect in the fall term. 

The program will offer students 
an opportunity to seek special as- 
sistance in their regular courses 
and provide those specially moti- 
vated the facilities for personal 
research and enrichment, 

The course, MS-090, offered In 
conjunction with the Lab will 
serve as a preparation for those 
students not prepared to enter 
MS-106 or 110. 

These students will be selected 
by means of testing and enrolled 
in 090. If, at the end of the first 
six weeks they have shown on a 
proficiency test a capability to en- 
ter 106 or 110, and if their sched- 
ule permits, they will be placed 
in special sections of those 
courses, opened at that time. 

The classes out of necessity, 
meet five times a week to com- 
plete the course requirements by 
the end of the term. 

Emphasis in the program is be- 
ing placed on personal contact be- 
tween the student and instructor 
and regular testing to determine 
progress and provide encourage- 

"Rather than letting students 

start and then fail or drop, we're 
going to test them in advance and 
those who look like they will have 
trouble, will be offered MS-O90,'* 
explained Mr. Robert Yount, of 
the Math Department. 

"Those who are not ready to 
enter the regular course in six 
weeks can continue in the Lab 
until the end of the term at which 
time their progress will be re- 
evaluated," he continued. 

In addition to the remedial 
course, which counts as a cred- 
ited course, though is not 
transferable and will not fulfill 
the general education require- 
ments, the Math Lab is available 
to any student on campus desir- 
ing to avail himself of it, 

Davies Explores Problems 
Of Religious Education 

Dr. Sidney Davies described 
the major problem encountered 
at a recent meeting in Orlando 
concerning religion in public 
schools and in schools of higher 
learning as "teaching religion in 
schools as such, rather than with 
a denominational emphasis." 

"It should be taught as a regu- 
lar course such as English or Bi- 
ology is taught," he added. 

The group of educators from 
Florida junior colleges and uni- 
versities and several out of state 
institutions, met March 6, 7 and 
8 to study the problems of teach- 
ing religion in universities and 
junior colleges. 

The first problem considered is 
that of adequate trained person- 

The second involved a study of 
the proper curriculum involved 
in junior college. 

The university is concerned 
about the quality of the course 
being offered in the junior col- 
lege. This concern is reflected in 
a third problem concerning the 
transfer of credit in religion. 

Dr. Davies stated that religion 
is "interwoven Into the social and 
cultural life of man; you can- 
not take one from the other. You 
must study the whole man." 

"Man is inevitably and incur- 
ably religious," he continued. 
The problem of religion in schools 
today is not prayer but teaching 
it as a "regular subject; the 
primitive groups, the living re- 
ligions, and effects on social and 
cultural life." 

In various committee meetings 
at the conference suggestions 
were made to investigate text- 
books, the authenticity of teach- 

Speech Contest 
Offers Cash Prizes 

A speech contest centered 
around the topic of "What Democ- 
racy Means to Me" and spon- 
sored by the Palm Beaoh County 
Chapter 174 B'nai B'rith Women 
and The Anti-Defamation League 
is open to all junior college stu- 
dents under 25 years of age. 

Cash prizes are being offered, 
$25.00 for first place. $15.00 for 
second and $10.00 for third. 

The Brotherhood Speech Contest 
is being held Thursday, March 20, 
at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. in 
the auditorium classroom. 

The contest will be judged by 
a panel of faculty members and 
the winners will appear at a pro- 
gram Tuesday evening, March 25, 
at 8:00 p.m. at Schwartzberg Hall 
of the Temple Israel. 

The speeches will be judged on 
content and organization, effec- 
tiveness of message and deliv- 

ers, the standards met and the 
methods of teaching. 

In a further meeting discus- 
sion concerned religion in public 
schools from junior high to high 

Broward county now has a pro- 
gram offering religion as a course 
to junior high and high school 
students. There has been good 
family reaction toward the "Bible 
as Literature" approach. 

"The fear is that there will be 
a denominational idea forced up- 
on the individual. This is caus- 
ing the commotion," said Dr. 
Davies. "We cannot get away 
from religion in schools. It is in- 
volved in everything; history, lit- 
erature and the social sciences," 
he added.

O'Connell Denies Recognition To The SSOC 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Edttor-in-ChM 

A crowd of more than 400 peo- 
ple, who didn't care to "stay 
home and listen to election re- 
turns" last November 5, gathered 
in front of the University of Flor- 
ida's Tigert HaH to stage what 
they called an anti-political rally. 

A dime store flag was burned, 

along with a number of cards 
(supposedly draft cards). 

A march on the hall was also 
initiated. Although cries of "Take 
Tigert" were heard, no attempt

an official student organization. 

After much delay the issue was 
sent to the Committee on Student 
Organizations appointed by Uni- 
versity President, Stephen C. 
O'Connell, for an open hearing. 

The committee, which was com- 
prised of five faculty members 
and four students, had the task 
of making recommendations to 
O'Connell concerning the results 
of the hearing. 

The committee in a five to four 
majority vote, approved the SSOC 

According to Rush E, Choate, 
chairman of the committee, rec- 
ognition was based on the assur- 
ance by SSOC that it would 
function "within the channels of 
procedure at the university and 
must refrain from disruption of 
any university operation." 

"It must conduct its activities 
free from violence and in a law- 
ful and peaceful manner," added 
Choate, "if it does not follow 
these rules, recognition can be

Naturally, this list is not meant 
to be inclusive of all the SDS 
tactics, only the most common. 

Also there are no set formulas 
for deciding which tactics to use 
in any given situation. 

The problem is not whether or 
not one makes enemies, but 
whether or not one has the right 
people for enemies.

ALLIGATOR stated in an tt 
torial, "members of the Ital 
SSOC chapter do not fit the m& 
of the national image. They art 
plain and simple, and non-viote 
in philosophy and in practice." 

"The time to decide that SSOC 
should not be allowed offlttf 
membership in the universe 
community," the editorial <to 
tinued, "is after it violates k 
rules of working for construe!?! 
change through established d» 
nels, not before." 

A month later, O'Connell daW 
recognition to SSOC. 

The decision denied SSOC; & 
privilege of using campus facili- 
ties, inviting guest speakers vi 
receiving money from studtt 
government, O'Connell stated. 

It was reported that 0'Coniwlli 
decision was influenced by \ r i« 
President of Student Affairs L»

out that: 

• SSOC is not a student gm; 
because its membership is not ft

litical actions, 

• SSOC did not deny that is 
sources of power was "the sc-

In response, SSOC dedfttd 
themselves "officially recognlia?

FSU's Marshall Refuses SDS Grant, 
Enumerates Reasons For Dec/sloi 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

Last month, SDS's bid for rec- 
ognition at Florida State Uni- 
versity was strangled by acting 
president of the university, Stan- 
ley Marshall. 

Citing several reasons for his 
decision, including threats to dis- 
obey the rules of the university 
and implications that there would 
be violence, Marshall listed five 
points favoring recognition of 
SDS and then enumerated five 
points in opposition to SDS. 

The following points were taken 
from a report in FSU's student 
newspaper, THE FLAMBEAU. 

1. There appears to be nothing 
legally objectionable in the na- 
tional or local constitution of 

2. Florida is one of the few— 
perhaps the only state— in which 
a public university has arbitrarily 
denied recognition to SDS. This 

could result In a loss of respect 
in the national academic commu- 
nity and perhaps in the commu- 
nity at large. 

3. Failure to give the organiza- 
tion official recognition gives SDS 
students a convenient cause for 
the headlines they seek. 

4. Whether the administration 
officially recognizes it or not, 
SDS, in fact exists on campus. 

5. FSU is a strong and viable 
democratic Institution which has 
no need to fear dissent in what- 
ever form it occurs. "The order- 
ly kind it welcomes, the dis- 
orderly kind it can control." 


1. Although national and local 
constitutions reflect no unlawful 
purposes, statements of national 
officers have advocated violence 
and destruction. 

2, The national organization 
and its leaders who have been 
shown to be destructive will be 
strengthened by the establish- 

ment of a chapter at FSU. 

3. Those purporting to be p 
members have failed to '" 
reasonable and clearly establish 
procedures on the campus la ft 
cent weeks. 

4. SDS's failure to appeal fcf 
original denial of recognition n 
Vice President John An»| 
raises serious questions about m 
group's desire to participate!* 
structively in the academic es 

5. There are existing umversr 
regulations applicable to all » 
dent organizations with which ^ 
SDS application appears to ® 

Marshall termed his. dec! 
"subjective judgment," rapw 
him to go beyond the fouresr

Sports Roundup 

The Pacer golf team picked up 
their first loss of the season as 
they fell victim to Miami-Dade 
South, 311 to 326. 

Despite the team's loss, Jim 
Harmon led the Pacer's scoring 
with an excellent 77 on the treach- 
erous Palmetto Country Club 
course. An over abundance of 
lakes and sandtraps caused many 
of the scores to soar. 

Some of the other Palm Beach 
scores were: Don Nelson, 81; 
Steve Pearson, 84; and Bob Mc- 
Tammany, 84. 

In a tournament played two 
days later, March 8 in Lake Plac- 
id, the Pacers avenged their ear- 

lier defeat to Miami-Dade South 
by beating them by two strokes. 
At the same time, the golf team 
lost to both Edison and Miami- 
Dade North. 

The team scores were; Miami- 
Dade North, 303; Edison, 326; PB 
JC, 334; and Miami-Dade South, 

Bruce Fleisher, the National 
Amateur Champion, led MDN to 
victory with a 74, the lowest score 
of the day over the windswept 
course. Four shots behind was 
Bobby McTammany, the lowest 
PB player. His 78 was followed 
by Pete Balon, 85; Jim Harmon, 
85; and Don Nelson, 86.

If Spring Demand Is Demonstrated 
Intramural Program To Operate 

by Tom Sherman 

'Comber KpoiN Editor 

The I-R department announced 
last week that a modified intra- 
mural program based on student 
demand is being planned for the 
Spring Term 1. 

The gymnasium is to be avail- 
able for free use by students dur- 
ing the activity period which is 
from 11:00 to 11:45 at which time 
students may check out equip- 
ment and utilize the facilities. 

Also at this time the tennis 
courts, archery range, horseshoe 
pits, and when completed, soft- 
ball diamonds, may be available. 

Bell said that the only require- 
ments to use these facilities is that 
the student sign in each time he 
uses a facility and wear tihe ap- 
propriate clothing in participat- 
ing in those events and activities. 

It was also learned that should 
a sufficient number of students 
request a tournament in an ac- 
tivity, the I-R Board shall be 
more than willing to act as spon- 

"There also may be time avail- 
able after school," commented 
Bell, "however, students should 
work in pairs in such things as 
judo, karate, badminton and ten- 

Challenged tournaments are al- 
so to be held and students may 
challenge each other for a spring 

Also, if organizations wish to 
hold tournaments in particular 
events, Bell stated that one day 
each week, of the six weeks pe- 
riod may be reserved. 

Bell mentioned that there may 
also be, on a recreation basis, 
a schoolwide picnic, returning to 
the former "Beach - A - Que" at 
John Prince Park. Bell stressed 
however, that this would not be 
possible if the finances did not 

Bell also said (finances permit- 
ting) "we may try water skiing 

for another event. We do hope 
the students use our facilities such 
as tennis, badminton, table tennis, 
and the gym. The faculty may 
also use our facilities providing 
their schedules permit." 

The program is one of the 'bet- 
ter ways for students to get full 
use of their activity fee. 

The facilities are there — Mon- 
day through Friday. Why not use 

Patrick Comes Through 
For PBK When Needed 

When coach Bobbie Knowles 
talks about the depth of this 
year's women's tennis team, she 
is referring to players like Kathy 

Kathy, known affectionately as 
"The Kong" because of her tre- 
mendous strength and endurance, 
has been a major contributing 
factor in the team's 4-3 record 
at present. 

Although she is ranked only 
number 6 on the team, Kathy has 
really come through for the Pac- 
ers when they needed it. 

When number 4 player, Joanne 
Rogers, was out for two matches 
with a broken rib, Kathy stepped 
in. She easily won her match 
against Indian River and played 
extremely well in a losing cause 
at Miami-Dade South. 

Even though she doesn't play 
singles regularly, Kathy does play 
an important role in the doubles. 

"We rely heavily on our dou- 
bles to win matches for us," says 
Miss Knowles, "and it just could 
be that our doubles will carry 
us to a third or fourth place 
finish in the state tournament 
next month." 

At present, the number 2 dou- 
bles team of Patrick and Gail 
Marcurn have lost only twice. 

Both matches were extremely 
close (Dade South 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 
and Dade North 6-4, 7-5), and 
Marcurn and Patrick are confi-

"In fact, we plan on winning 
our division," say Gail and 

What's it like playing doubles 
with "The Kong"? 

According to her partner, 
"Kathy is easy to play with. She 
is a natural athlete and a terrific 
competitor. She never "gives up, 
and I think that's why we win so 
many matches. If Kathy is having 
a good day, her opponents had 
better beware. She hits the ball 
so hard that I'm just glad she's 
on my sidel" 

Kathy Patrick is only a fresh- 
man, as are number 3 Maria 
Cartaya and number 4 Joanne 

With such depth, it looks like 
the women netters should be 
pretty well set for next year. 

Add Maria Montero, Gall Mar-

picture, and the outlook for the 
upcoming state tournament 
doesn't look too bad for the only

PBJC Offers Accredited Foreign Study Plan 

by Lorraine Ljunggren 

'Comber Feature Editor 

Stratford -on -Avon, where William Shakespeare 
once walked and wrote, the Sistine Chapel where 
Michelangelo created one of the greatest mas- 
terpieces of art the world has ever seen, and 
Athens, where the great Greek classics were per- 
formed at the Theater of Dionysus. 

These foreign and romantic places are but a 
very few of those students have the opportunity 
to visit this summer in a foreign study plan. 

The program, initiated by the American Inter- 
national Academy of Salt Lake City, Utah about 
twelve vears ago, is a new experience for the 
Florida "junior college system. 

PBJC is the first to incorporate these trips to 
Europe as accredited courses. 

A tour under the supervision of Watson B. Dun- 
can III, Chairman of the Communications Depart- 
ment offers 3 hours of credit in EH-201 (English 
Literature before 1680) or EH-202 (English Litera- 
ture after 1660). 

Students leave New York City, Kennedy Airport, 
on July 4, 1969, with the first stop being Ireland. 

A total of nine days will be spent there visit- 
ing several cities, studying authors of the Emerald 


Scotland is the next destination, where the group 
is scheduled to stay five days with their base being 
in Edinburgh. 

Eleven days are to be spent in London where 
students will be able to not only pursue their 
studies, but to attend the theatres of London, where 
Shakespeare's works were performed. 

A short flight to Switzerland and then on to 
Munich, Germany, for the final two days in Europe 
before the flight home August 12, 1969. 

The English Literature trip costs the student 
$800 plus his own transportation to New York. 

A special tour for the Drama Department is 
being offered for the first time this year. Josh 
Crane, Director of Forensics, is the faculty mem- 
ber accompanying this tour. 

This is being offered for SP-103 (Introduction 
to the Theatre) and carries three hours of credit 
also. The course surveys various kinds of drama, 
past and present. 

Students leave from West Palm Beach, or Or- 
lando, on June 22, bound for Rome. 

A Mediterranean excursion to Greece finds 4fte 
participants high atop the Acropolis. Back to Rome 

for various tours, on to Florence, Venice .and tfien 

The city of Paris offers the Louvre Museum 
and the Eiffel Tower. 

On to London and the surrounding countryside 
for nine days to wrap up the trip. Students leave 
for Florida on July 31. 

The cost of this course is $995 which includes 
round trip jet transportation from Florida to Eu- 
rope, room and board. 

For the lover of fine art, 'there is a study pro- 
gram offering AT-115 (a special combination of 
the History and Appreciation of Art course). Mrs. 
J6 Gray, of the Art Department, conducts the tour. 

The group leaves Florida and flies to Rome on 
June 22. They follow the same basic route as the 
drama tour. 

The cost of this program is $870 inclusive. 

Any student who is interested in taking one of 
these tours should see the instructor mentioned 
above for an application, or the registrar. 

Persons must be accepted for admission to PBJC 
to be eligible. These courses may be audited.

discount which makes the gift 
amount to about seven hundred 
dollars worth of books. 

Smith stated that the books are 
being purchased for the library 
donation in an attempt to dis- 
tribute SGA funds received from 
the student activity fee more 
equitably so that all PBJC stu- 
dents may benefit from their 

About 130 books were selected 
with a wide range of topics. 

Mr. Douglas and Mr. Roberts 
of the PBJC library helped Smith 
with the purchasing. 

"However," Smith commented, 
"I did most of the selecting be- 
cause Mr. Douglas and Mr. Rob-

Bob Mandell, pushing past close 
contender Cliff Burdette with a 
narrow 34 vote margin, garnered 
134 votes to become the new SGA 

When the votes were tallied, the 
results were Mandell, 134 votes, 
Burdette 100, and Dennis Pearce, 

The vice-presidential, secretary, 
and treasurer races were not so 
exciting, as all three were unop- 

Vice-president elect Bill Gra- 
ham obtained 251 votes, with Sec- 
retary elect Debi Uglow receiv- 
ing 232, and Treasurer elect Vicki 
Gersch getting 239. 

In other results, all Amend- 
ments to the Constitution passed 
and the results of the student 
opinion poll, calling for a day- 
time Afro - American Workshop, 
were favorable. 

An unusually small turnout of 
327 students cast their ballots in 
an election which will go down as 
a first in PBJC history. 

Not only was the voter turnout 
almost a record low, and not only 
were three offices unopposed, but 
also, for the first time, a candi- 
date was disqualified for violat- 
ing election rules. 

Vincent Matteis was disquali- 
fied for displaying a poster in an 
illegal area on election day. 

When the results were an- 
nounced, Mandell, with a broad 
grin on his face, could only stut- 
ter, "Well, I'll 'be damned!" 

However, as soon as Larry Win- 
ter, Chairman of the Elections 
Board finished his announcement, 
Matteis submitted to him a writ- 
ten statement contesting the elec- 

Matteis contested on the grounds 
that polls did not open and close 
at the time specified in the elec- 
tion rules, that there was no offi- 
cial timekeeper during the candi- 
dates speeches, and that other 
candidates had posters up in il- 
legal places on election days. 

The Elections Board, made up 
of Winter, Paul Buxton, and Jim 
Van Gilder reviewed the appeal 
and later issued a statement 
denying the request for an entire 
new election. 

Their proclamation states that 
due to technical difficulties the 
polls did not open until 8:30 on 
April 2, and to compensate for 
■this, the poll in the SAC Lounge 
remained open until 4 p.m. 

Matteis, along with the Election 
Board, will be permitted to take 
this matter on to the Judicial De- 
partment today for final review 
and decision. 

When informed of the election 
Board's denial of the appeal, Mat- 
teis turned to Chairman Winter 
and commented, "You don't know 
what you have done. I have to 
warn you— this is not a threat, 
but you have opened the door to 
Pandora's box." 

Through all this, President-elect 
Bob Mandell just sat back and 
waited. When informed of Mat-

i* ^uauma^*i>^.«..i&«MB»»t^.M~_ t ^ M ^ w ^ 


Above The Rules 

Wednesday, SGA presidential candidate Vincent Matteis 
was disqualified from the race by the Elections Board for 
displaying campaign posters in an illegal area. 

Thursday afternoon the election was contested by Mat- 
teis on grounds that the election board had violated their 
own election rules^ 

It seems that the entire controversy may have been avoid- 
ed if the election rules would have been drafted in a less 
severe manner. 

We feel that the rules should have included a statement 
which could have provided an opportunity for candidates 
who have been accused of violations to present their side of 
the case, to have a hearing. 

We also feel that neither the Elections Board nor Mat- 
teis is to blame for the unfortunate situation which has been 
created. We applaud the Elections Board for adhering to the 
rules they approved by disqualifying a candidate who was 
in violation of them. 

However, their decision to deny Matteis's appeal to in- 
validate the election puts them above the rules they have 
drafted. It seems that the only way to prevent this from 
happening, in the future is to amend the election rules. 


Henry Clay, one of America's 
great statesmen, once said, in his 
bid for the presidency of the 
U.S., "I would rather be right 
than president." 

It would appear that the hier- 
archy of this school's administra- 
tion and the Student Gov't. Assoc, 
adheres to the twisted criteria 
of this statement that in order 
to be right, or at least make pub- 
lic his beliefs on right and wrong, 
one must necessarily be exempt- 
ed from the office of president 
of the SGA. This they call "De- 
mocracy in action," 

It is my judgment, that this 
school makes a mockery of the 
ideals of true democracy. It ap- 
pears that one of the four can- 
didates for the SGA presidency 
was disqualified by true virtue of 
a sign, posted on the SAC Lounge 
door, the presence of which, the 
candidate was completely un- 

I suspect, however, that this 
amounts to nothing but a tech- 
nical smoke screen to shroud the 
actual reasons for disqualifica- 

Having been present at the con- 
vention of candidates in the SAC 
Lounge on April 1, the true rea- 
sons for disqualification of this 
candidate are apparent and self 
evident to this writer. 


People Relations Not Racial 

by Sandy Thomas 

'Comber Staff Writer 
The Organization of Afro-Ameri- 
can Affairs (OAA) staged their 
second open meeting of the year 
last Tuesday for the purpose of 
discussing racial relations on the 
PBJC campus. 
OAA coordinator Wilson Brad- 
iw, who presided over the fo- 
n, opened the session by invit- 
; all those in- attendance to 

participate and air their views 
on the racial atmosphere of PB- 

Dr. Samuel Bottosto, advisor to 
the organization, opened with the 
potent question, "What is the ra- 
cial atmosphere on this campus?" 
Answers ranged from "fair" to "It 

It seemed, however, that the 
main problem was completely

We speak of racial relations, 
what about "people" relations? 
When the whites can't even be 
friendly with whites, how can we 
expect them to go out of 'their 
way to be friendly to anyone 

This can be true in any ethnic 
group. People must learn to as- 
sociate with people, to look be- 
yond skin color and into Lheir 

Yet, when we try to do this, we 
are constantly being reminded of 
our skin color and other such 
trivia by others. Welre in a rut. 
All of us. 

People must want to get to 
know people for what they are, 
not because they are "supposed" 
to be friendly in order to "help" 
race relations. 

Human relations must be based 
on sincerity and frankness and 
a willingness to give as well as 

Mankind is one force, that 
should be working together, not 
separated into little groups work- 
ing against each other. 

In order for one to be an out- 
going person, to be the one to 
take that step towards another, 
to extend that friendly hand, he 
must have courage, he must have 
self-confidence, and he must be 
an individual. 

He must be a real man or a real 

Yet, how many such people are 
there? There seem to be fright- 
eningly few. 

There is no formula for loving 
one another, it must be a per- 
sonal accomplishment, beginning 
with the individual and then 
spreading to others. 

One must overcome his inhi- 
bitions and fears and take that 
single step towards that journey 
of a thousand miles. 

Only one of the contenders for 
this office had the time or con- 
victions to stand up and make 
public his views on certain con- 
troversial issues. 

In so doing, he stepped on the 
toes of several members of the 
SGA Executive council and the 
school's administration policies; 
for example, the dress code pol- 

For this reason, and this reason 
alone, he was disqualified.

PBJC's Hair 

Fuzz - A Hairy Happening 

Don't Let Money Dictate 
Your Style Of Clothing 


I am sure that everyone was as 
surprised as I was to read the 
letter from Mr. Bryan Weeks 
(March 7) concerning the dress 

It is hard to believe that this 
man actually believes what he 

He advocates not associating 
with certain people because of 
their mode of dress. What kind 
of rule is this to live by? 

Some of the statements were 
unbelievable. "Don't be foolish 
and believe in 'class.' Do not let 
them lower you to their own lev- 
el." What does he mean? First 
he says not to believe in "classes" 
and then he says there are lev- 
els in society. 

The closing paragraph has to 
top it off. "It is undoubtedly the 
best rule to dress well and feel 
well. Over the years you will at- 
tract more money." 

So now money has become the 
ultimate! What kind of a philos- 
ophy is this? We must all dress 
well in order to attract money. 
It seems to me that this is what 
the man wanted to say in the first 

It must be a sad life when a 
man lets money become so im- 
portant that it even dictates his 

style of clothing.

'Comber Staff Writer 

As the curtain opened upon a 
stage veiled in a purple haze, I 
sat back to enjoy PBJC's short- 
ened version of the Broadway 
hit, "Hair" directed by Rado 

The production, presented last 
Thursday in the Auditorium, was 
directed by Bob Zaun and aptly 
entitled, "Fuzz." 

My eyes scanned the stage 
filled with every conceivable ob- 
ject from a poster of the Mona 
Lisa to a toilet seat hanging from 
the ceiling, when from the back 
of the auditorium, my ears did 
perceive the yelping of what 
sounded like some Indian bucks 
who had had a bit too much 

And quite emotional they were, 
they took no time in getting ac- 
quainted with everyone in the 
audience; ie., physical contact. 

After this "getting acquainted" 
period, the actors scrambled onto 
stage in slow motion, allowing the 
audience to relax for a moment 
and watch what I am sure was 
one of the most unusal presenta- 
tions to hit PBJC's stage. 

Although most of the produc- 
tion was pantomimed to a taped 
recording of songs from "Hair," 
some "live" dialogue was thrown 
in for good measure and added 
a much needed dramatic touch. 

King Morrison, the only black 
actor in the show, (who, by the 
way, is described by his fellow- 
actors as "Stokley Carmichael 
with a sense of humor" was one 
of the outstanding characters on

As viewed by the "new" youth 
of America, nothing was spared 
in the June of social, religious,

Of course, one of the biggest 
gripes contained in the philoso-

nation's" involvement in that 
"dirty little war." 

from Viet Nam as heard on TV

into chorus' of "my heart beats

batters had to do was to hit the ball and they were almost 
assured of getting on base. Their hapless opponents chalked 
up nine errors and at one point in the contest, had accumu- 
lated more miscues than innings played. 

Dedication ceremonies were held prior to game time it 
President Harold C. Manor threw out the first pitch asd 
the new field was titled "Pacer Field." 

PBJC is now 9-11 and have surpassed their highest wa- 
ning output in history. 

Coach Mel Edgerton commented that the biggest as«t 
his team holds is spirit and hustle - both are on and <8 
the field. 

The Pacers are in a process of rebuilding. 

It may sound humorous to have crowds of only fifteen 
but in the past virtually no one attended the games, If am 
it would be the baseball scouts following the other team. 

But things are different now. Edgerton came here ant 
took a losing team into his hands and already has Am 
justice by producing the winningest team, had^a no-hife 
pitched by Bob Eggert and Mark Golumbeski against Drak 
Junior College, won a double header, and it's possible to havt 
a winning record at the end of the season. 

The strong point in the team is hitting which has some- 
what faltered. Ray Carter is hitting .255 for a team high* 

Injuries have also curved the play of Sharrock, D* 
Bigbie, and Carter. Sharrock has had arm and leg trad* 
Bigbie has obtained a sore arm and Carter had a broiis 
jaw. He was hitting .329 at the time. 

PBJC has four games remaining on their schedule. & 
are home events against Miami-Dade South, April 8 and! 
and Florida Keys, April 11 and 12. 

With a little student support, the Pacers can win all foe

History Of PBJC Unfolds 
As An Episode Of Change 

('Coiulier Staff Photo by Ernest DeBakey) 

LIGHTS OF KNOWLEDGE - The newest addition to 
the PBJC campus, the Library Learning Resource Center re- 
mains open nights from 6 - 10 p. m., as a vast number of 
materials are at the disposal of students. 

by Jacquie Boiling and 
Bob McTammany 

The history of Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College, is a timetable 
packed with change, challenge 
and cooperation. 

The oldest public junior college 
in the state, PBJC was founded 
in 1933 through the efforts of 
Superintendent of Schools Joseph 
Youngblood and high school prin- 
cipal Howell L. Watkins as well 
as an advisory committee con- 
sisting of representatives of local 
civic organizations. 

These people found that many 
of the community young people 
could not afford to reside at the 
campuses of state universities or 
other colleges, and once there, 
could not find employment. 

Watkins and Youngblood be- 
lieved that what the Palm 
Beaches needed was an institu- 
tion which would give the student 
with scholastic ability and lim- 
ited funds an opportunity for 
higher education. 

These leaders along with the 
advisory committee, approached 

the County Board of Public In- 
struction for aid. 

As a result, PBJC became a 
part of the county school system 
and remained under their juris- 
diction until June 30, 1968. 

Conceived to serve the commu- 
nity and its students, the junior 
college began on shaky legs but 
emerged strong and powerful af- 
ter many early moves. 

The first location of the col- 
lege was Palm Beach High School 
in what is now the Science Build- 
ing. It remained there until 1948 
when Dr. John I. Leonard be- 
came its first president. 

Needing more room, the college 
moved to Morrison Field, a de- 
activated military 'base adjacent 
to Palm Beach International Air- 
port which the Board acquired 
in 1947 from the U. S. govern- 
ment. This served as the home 
of PBJC until the Korean War 
in 1953 when the armed forces 
reactivated the field. 

At this time rumors sprang up 
that this would be the end of 
PBJC. Although the college had

'Comber Feature Editor 

Just as change describes Palm 
Beach Junior College, so does 
variety. The program of studies 
a nd activities is well diversified 
having something for a majority. 

The traditional open house, 
Sunday, provides the visiting pub- 
lic with a brief look at campus 
fcfe and the individual study pro- 
grams offered at PBJC. 

The major departments which 
°iake up the college, numbering 
^S, are having instructors on hand 
to guide visitors through their in- 
dividual divisions. 

The K-ette and Circle K clubs 
^U act as guides to aid guests 
a s they tour the campus. 

The Southside Kiwanis Barbe- 
Que which is held annually in 
conjunction with Open House runs 
from 12 noon to 6 p.m. 

The majority of programs are 
c oncentrated from 2 p.m. to 4 
P-m., a noted exception being 
'he 1:30 p. m. stage band concert 
10 be held in the Cafeteria. 

The Art Department is slated 

to stage its showing of their an- 
nual student exhibit in the Hu- 
manities Building. 

A new addition to the college, 
which supplements the Reading 
Clinic held in the Administration 
Building, downstairs, is the 
Speech and Hearing Clinic. This 
deals mainly in the area of speech 
therapy. The use of a video-tape 
machine allows the speaker not 
only to hear himself on tape, 
but also to view himself on a 
television screen. 

Zoological and botanical dis- 
plays are featured by the Biol- 
ogy Department. Four demonstra- 
tions are to be conducted by fac- 
ulty and students. 

The new NCR 4200 accounting 
machine demonstration can be 
seen in BA 129 in the Business 
Building, part of the complex ad- 
jacent to the Library Learning 
Resources Center. 

An office machine display is 
in BA 132. The Retailing division 
offers a slide-sound demonstra- 

Living in the computer age, 

the college's two computers can 
be viewed in operation in the 
Data Processing Building. 

For those whose interest lies 
in the area of engineering or 
physics, displays which include 
work done by students, are sched- 
uled to appear in the Technical 

An air conditioning and ma- 
terials testing * demonstration are 
to be located in the Tech Lab 
Building. The Library room 129 
will house drafting. 

A slide-tape program on the 
American author Ernest Heming- 
way is to be shown by the Eng- 
lish Department in BA 310. 

The Foreign Language Depart- 
ment will play recordings from 
Italy, Spain, France and Portu- 
gal. This can be heard in AD 25. 

The Gymnasium houses the 
first-aid display, badminton dem- 
onstration and activities movies, 
all part of the physical educa- 
tion program at PBJC. 

The Science Building also holds 
the display of clothing made by 
students in the Home Economics 

'Division along with a film strip 
on the field of homemaking. 

A new mathematics laboratory 
which is scheduled to open this 
summer can be seen for the first 
time by the public. It is accom- 
panied by a movie, a film strip 
and a demonstration. 

The Music Department offers 
recordings of student musicians, 
the band concert and choral mu- 

A specially arranged demon- 
stration, one of the highlights of 
Open House, of the Law Enforce- 
ment classes, in cooperation with 
William Heidtman, Palm Beach 
County Sheriff, Palm Beach Po- 
lice Chief William Barnes and 
Lake Worth Police Chief Tom 
Nagle, will present a police dog 

The dogs are provided by the 
Deerfield Beach Police Depart- 
ment and can be viewed on the 
tennis courts at 2 p.m.

with the academic program in-

prospered, it was now left with- 
out a home. 

But the college wasn't ready 
to give in yet. Students and fac- 
ulty united to initiate a "cam- 
pus hunt." Local newspapers 
were plagued by indignant let- 
ters commanding a continuance 
of the college. 

As a result, the Town of Lake 
Park offered its town hall to the 
college for temporary quarters. 

The enrollment of 300 students 
at this time forced the college 
administrators to look for a per- 
manent home. 

In 1855 one million dollars was 
appropriated for junior colleges 
throughout Florida. In the same 
year, the Palm Beach County 
Board of Commissioners gave 
PBJC a permanent home on the 
northwest corner of John Prince 

The 114 acres given to the 
Board of Public Instruction was 
seeded with ideas and plans for 
the junior college. In 14 years 
it has grown. Buildings planted 
aesthetically over the campus 
have been the houses of learning 
for thousands of students. 

The future should be a continu- 
ation of the established history 
of change here at PBJC. 

Plans for new buildings are be- 
ing discussed. 

The college has also purchased 
land in the Palm Beach Gardens 
area for a second campus site. 

This campus is to be an at- 
tendance center which will help 
accommodate the growing num- 
ber of junior college students. 
Specialized as well as basic 
courses are to be offered. 

The enlargement of the 
school is an indication of its suc- 
cess. But it is not the buildings 
that make the history of Palm 
Beach Junior College. It is the 

Four hundred and seventy-five 
students filled the classrooms in 
1956. Now more than 5,000 are 
taking their place. 

There is a tremendous educa- 
tional opportunity here catering 
to the whole community. The 
school is willing to lend its 
knowledge and facilities to any- 
one with the desire to learn and 
the qualities necessary to absorb 
the knowledge. 

The story of Palm Beach' Jun- 
ior College is a story of courage 
and determination — determina- 
tion by the many far-sighted in- 
dividuals whose visions of an era 
when education would be avail- 
able to all were not only a dream. 
They made it a reality.

Afro Meet Airs Racial Problems 


by Suzanne Lash 
"Comber News Editor 

The newly-formed Afro-Ameri- 
can Affairs group was organized 
on the PBJC campus in an at- 
tempt to bring together Black and 
White students rather than to 
separate them, assistant coordina- 
tor Leonard Butler told a group 
discussion March 20. 

Butter said the OAA aimed at 
bringing the Negroes on campus 
into a more integral position and 

"an attempt to get to know each 
other (Negroes and Whites)." 

The informal group discussion 
afforded interested students and 
the members of the organization 
the opportunity to air opinions on 
racial differences, OAA's role on 
campus and Afro- American 

Students questioning the need 
for such studies and the methods 
led the discussion into courses 

in Afro-American culture and his- 

Students freely voiced ideas and 
argued them out together. Opin- 
ions may have differed, but as 
Butler put it "just being here 
like this is a start." The friendly 
atmosphere, with coffee provided 
by the OAA gave students an in- 
sight into some of the problems 
of racial prejudice encountered

For the first time in recent 
PBJC history, four candidates 
are vying for the SGA presidency, 
while candidates for vice presi- 
dent, secretary and treasurer are 

At the close of the filing period, 
ten students had filed applica- 
tions for the offices of president, 
vice-president, secretary, and 
treasurer of the SGA. 

However, two of these students 
did not have the grade point av- 
erage, and the third withdrew for 
personal reasons. 

This leaves the offices of vice- 
president, secretary, and treas- 
urer virtually assured to the re- 
maining candidates running for 
these posts. All they must do, is 
obtain one vote of confidence. 

The race for president is guar- 
anteed to be a hassle with four 
qualified candidates vying for the 
top position. 

Campaigning started on March 
24. Speeches are to be given by 
all candidates Tuesday at 11 a.m. 
on the SAC patio. 

Voting will take place on April 
3 and 4. Machines will be located 
in the north SAC Lounge and in 
the breezeway on south side of 
the new library. Polls are open 
between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 
All regular students carrying at 
least twelve hours are eligible 
to vote. 

The names of the seven candi- 
dates running for the four vacant 
SGA executive posts and their 
qualifications are listed below. 
In addition to this the candidates 
were asked the following ques- 

"Why are you running for an 
SGA executive office?" and "If 

you are elected, what specific 
project or suggestion for improve- 
ment, or specific legislation will 
you promote to make PBJC a 
better junior college?" 

Clifton Burdette, a physics ma- 
jor and Independent candidate for 
president, lists the following qual- 
ifications; SGA senator and social 
chairman, a member of Circle K 
and a member of the Science 

"If elected I hope to revise the 
budgeting system, have tight SGA 
organizational control, strive to 
attain complete separation of pow- 
ers, re-organize the Communica- 
tions Board, and review course 
curricula and recommend 
changes," he said. 

"In addition I hope to distrib- 
ute responsibility to as many dif- 
ferent students as possible, as 
well as hold an educational work- 
shop for SGA," Burdette added. 

A member, of the baseball team, 
presidential candidate Vincent 
Matteis has the following aspira- 

"I hope to give the students a 
better understanding of the SGA 
through public forums. I also 
wish to give the student body a 
greater involvement in the policy 
making of PBJC." 

Presidential candidate Robert 
Mandell lists for his qualifica- 

Chaplain of the Phi Da Di fra- 
ternity, and participant in Intra- 
mural Basketball and Bowling. 

"I am running to help make the 
existence of SGA better known 
to the student body." 

"If I am elected, I would like 
to get a resolution passed by the 
Senate advocating the lowering of

'The American Dream' ~ 

New Experience In Drama Productions 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber News Editor 

The stage of Palm Beach Junior College again be- 
comes the scene of dramatic experimentation April 
11 and 12 when a group of drama students present 
a study of "The American Dream" by Edward Albee. 

"The American Dream" is, according to the play- 
wright, "an attack on the American Scene, an attack 
on ttie substitution of artificial for real values in 
our society, a condemnation of complacency, cruelty, 
emasculation and vacuity; it is a stand against the 
fiction that everything in this land of ours is peachy- 

Director of the production, John Schneider, de- 
scribes the play as "an extreme of society." What 
he is attempting to do with his cast of five is to 
provide an experience for the actors and audience. 

The introduction to the presentation will be made 
by Dr. Samuel Bottosto, chairman of the Social Sci- 
ence department. 

After the 50-minute play the actors will return 
to the stage minus makeup and costumes to conduct 

an open forum with the viewers on the social, con- 
temporary comments of the play. 

"The Idea Is taking a chance," said Schneider. 
"It has been done at theatre conferences," he added, 
but this is a first for the general audience. He hopes 
that the fact that it is not intended for the theatre- 
going public will attribute to its success. 

Invitations have been sent to teachers from the 
schools and colleges in the area to reach the audi- 
ence that would be most receptive to the experimental 
and intellectual aspects of the production. 

Schneider said he hopes to Involve these teachers 
and the students with an interest, in the experience. 
"The general public would walk out," he said. 

"It's a sharing 'thing," Schneider said, "It will 
be a fantastic study experience for the actors and 
the audience." 

Schneider is taking a chance with 'his casting of 
actors for the play also. The main characters, Mom- 
my and Daddy have been assigned to actors of the 
opposite sex than indicated. 

Because Mommy is a very masculine, domineer- 
ing woman, Martin Tischler has been given her part. 

Daddy, an effeminate, not-quite-masculine man, is 
played by Lindy Zellner. The role switching is an 
experimental effort to achieve a clear characteriza- 
tion of these persons. 

Tischler will be dressed like a woman, said Schnei- 
der and "I want the audience to be fooled Into think* 
tag he is a woman until he moves or speaks. While 
the play progresses I hope they will forget that he 
Is really a man." 

The problems facing these actors are beyond the 
usual ones of knowing their character since Miss 
Zellner will have to think like a man but be feminine 
in her movements while Tischler will have to do the 
same with his role as Mommy. 

The three remaining characters, Grandma, Mrs. 
Barker and a Young Man, are played by Laura Lee 
Athey, Janice Spadence and Steve Searl, respectively. 

The independent .student effort, conceived and 
planned by Schneider, has performances set for 8:14 
p.m. An additional presentation is planned before 
a Social Science Conference here of area Social Sci- 
ence instructors on April 12. There will be no admis- 
sion charge.

'Comber Concepts 


Reject Dress Code Proposal 

Aid Academic Activities 

A proposal before the faculty senate that would establish a 
waiver of enrollment fees for eligible athletes appears to be 
discriminatory toward non-athletic extra-curricular activities. 

We feel that a similar offer should be extended to SGA 
officers, outstanding drama and debate students as well as 
publication editors. 

These activities have already provided PBJC with local, 
state and in some cases national recognition. 

The above programs should not be forgotten now, but 
rather be given a suitable method to compete for outstanding 
talent in their respective fields who might not otherwise be 
able to afford a college education. 

Let's not omit the academic oriented activities. 

Hide And Go Seek 

Where do all the critics hide on election day? 

364 days a year they're active, telling everybody what's 
wrong with student government, but on election day they 
retired to the woodwork. 

Only seven freshmen filed for SGA executive offices last 
week, four of them for the office of president. Candidates 
for the other three posts are now unopposed. 

The critics total in excess of 1,000, but if 500 students 
vote on election day the rum out is considered excellent. 

Where are the critics when they finally have a chance 
to correct the wrongs that they constantly complain about? 

Face The Critics 


The "busy retiree" who writes 
to the Beachcomber "the human 
body is not a thing of beauty un- 
less . . . dressed up" is obvi- 
ously a retiree, but not very 

As for "getting more" dressed 
up, we just don't understand. 
Over the years one may "attract 
more money" but little else. 

We resent the twisted, Gant 
shirt philosophy (as well as the 
twisted logic) of the noble ag- 
gressive businessman Mr, Weeks. 

If it is the purpose of the dress 
code to make us "join the crowd" 
as Mr. Weeks, our open-minded 
administration and other propo- 
nents of the dress code feel it is, 
then we want no dress code at 

We therefore, urge the other 
students to demand of the fac- 
ulty to reject the Student Senate's 
sniveling proposals for a dress 
code change and to reject the 
whole conception of any dress 

We feel it is not the "best rule 
to dress "well;" rather it is the 
best rule to dress as an individual 
who has the human dignity of 
freedom of choice.

Get Hooked And Hep 
Take Law Enforcement 


It's that time again when stu- 
dents versus the IBM computers 
for spring and fall registration. 
Courses "have to be chosen. 

I would like to try and help 
those students who are still un- 
decided in their major or those 
students tired of their present ma- 
jor field of study. 

PBJC has one of the outstand- 
ing law enforcement programs in 
south Florida. This program is 
under the direction of Mr. Larry 
Turtle and Mr. Joseph Macy. 

If your courses are drabby and 
offer no excitement, then the law 
enforcement program is just what 
you need to arouse your interest. 

Such courses as Introduction to 
Law Enforcement, Police Admin- 
istration, Patrol Operations, Crim- 
inal Law, Criminal Investigation, 
Law of Arrest, Search and Seiz- 
ure, and a non-police course, but 
relating to this field — American 
Social Problems — a fine and 
powerful course. In this course 
alone, there is a different speak- 
er each week. 

Field trips include a visit to 
one of the finest police depart- 
ments in Florida — 'the West 
Palm Beach Police Station. 

Also there are drug sessions 
and guest speakers on police re- 
Sated topics. 

Classes not only consist of stu- 
dents but also police officers 
from every city in the immediate 

The only time students ever 
meet a police officer is when 
they receive a traffic violation. 

Then, these students have a 
sentment against all police 
the rest of their life. 

Police are human just as v 
and a student can obtain a K 
t*r understanding of the po 
through the courses offered 

Even if you don't plan to 
into police work, just lean 
about our men in blue by Eat 
Introduction to Law Enforcem 
can be a rewarding experienc 

So turn on and get hooked n 
term in a police program thai 
interesting and exciting.

Pacer's Pride 

"Make love not war," says freshman Janie Peters, this 
week's Pacer's Pride. 

A resident of Pompano, Janie finds her interests in opera, 
traveling and astrology. 

The 18-year-old Business major certainly livens up her

added. "These results would then 
be sent to Washington, D. C. so 
that cur national governmental 
officials would know just how 
PBJC students feel about the 
voting age controversy." 

"In respect to other policies, I 
^vant to wait until after I have 
spoken to administrators and stu- 
dents now involved in SGA," 
Mandell added. "After I have 
discussed problems with them 
and gained more knowledge on 
subjects pertaining to the school, 
I will have policies of greater 
importance which will have a 
greater effect on the school." 

Also a presidential candidate is 
business major Dennis Pearce. 
^earce is a freshman senator 
%nd member of Circle K. 

When asked why he was run- 
Ding, Pearce replied, "I have al- 
ways had a desire to serve my 
school. Being in the senate, I have 

found myself able to not only 
help make PBJC a better school, 
^Ut also to help the student body 
!t self. If elected president, I can 
^o even more." 

Pearce was then queried as to 
his future goals and policies. 

"My major goal is to serve 
a nd express the views of the ma- 
jority of students at PBJC in 
s&veral ways," he said. 

"Since the majority of the stu- 
dents are dissatisfied with the 
^ess code and absentee policies,

Pearce says he wants to help 
form better communications be- 
tween SGA and the student body 
concerning all aspects of campus 

In addition to this, Pearce said 
he hopes to reapportion the sen- 
ate so that the SGA senators rep- 
resent a definite group of people. 
In this way the senator will know 
who he is representing, and the 
student will know who to go to 
if he has a suggestion or a gripe, 
he said. 

The single vice - presidential 
candidate is political science ma- 
jor Bill Graham. 

Graham is a freshman senator 
and member of Phi Rho Pi, Phi 
Theta Kappa, and College Foren- 

Graham was asked how it felt 
to be running unopposed. 

"It feels pretty good. However, 
it is discouraging to note that 
people are so apathetic that they 
won't even file," he said. 

Freshman senator and Thi Del 
Sorority are the qualifications of 
secretary hopeful Debi Uglow. 

Candidate for treasurer is Vicki 
Gersch, an interior design major. 
Her qualifications include fresh- 
man senator, Philo treasurer, Phi

ber of the Art Club.

Faces And Sister George 



John Cassavetes took his 16 mm 
camera, jerked it handily in 
black-and-white and blurted out 
an uncertain excursion into that 
American entity, suburbia, where 
adulterors no longer lurk in 
shadows at the far corner of the 
back patio. 


The city dweller escaped his 
self-made highrise neighborhood 
encompassing the need to be in- 
volved and caring, actually car- 
ing, about the Smiths, Leonetti's 
and Goldmans, moving to the 
city's skirts where he pursued 
self pleasantries in the name of 
the family. All the while, one- 
by-one, he was joined by the 
Smiths, Leonetti's and finally the 
Goldmans who were "accepted" 
at the street's end. 

So went, the caravan of the ear- 
ly Fifties. The young marrieds 
of post WWII began rearing their 
offspring. And the deposed city 
dweller/neo-suburbanite again be- 
came involved with and cared 
about the neighbors, expanses of 
grass and landscaping, perfected 
by Antony's Lawn Service ("He's 
simply the best in town, Bob.") 
replacing the thin doors and nar- 
row halls. 

Cassavetes moves In on these 
young marrieds two decades af- 
ter the ceremony very much in 
their middle years, contributors 
of countless Benjamin Braddocks 
off at the private 4-year liberal 
arts college or worse the state 

With only Christmas and sum- 
mer vacations at home", the stu- 
dent leaves his parents to mix 
with the other parents. And mix- 
ing more than just drinks. 

On the heels of Benjamin an- 
nouncing God Is Dead, these 
couples find themselves reaching 
to sex to replace the lost warmth 
of spirituality. 

We see them close, uptight if 
you will. The eyes, the irregular 
chin, a few nostril hairs, cheeks 
craggy from adolescent acne — 
Cassavetes relentlessly drives the 
camera not just up- to the actors 
but up onto their "Faces." 

John Morley is the husband on 
the lam with stylish prostitute 
Gena Rowlands (Cassavetes* real- 
life wife) providing the home- 

Feigning comeuppance, the 
wife (Lynn Carlin) gathers the 
other discarded girls and shuffles 
everyone to the Whiskey A Go-Go, 
habitat of one gangly middle-age 
hustler (Seymour Cassel) who 
presumably is invited to return 
with the pudgy wives for ensuing 
parlor games. 

Miss Carlin and Mr. Cassel are 
nominated for Oscars in support- 
ing roles. Cassavetes has earned 
himself a nomination for writing 
the original screenplay. 

This year not one of the five 
films nominated for best picture 
are written expressly for the 
screen. One Is from a novel, three 
from Broadway, and one is even 
Shakespeare (funny, he didn't 
get nominated for screenplay). 
Again Hollywood has given the 
back hand to original cinemamak- 

With absolutely no qualms of 
putting it in writing, "Faces" 
with all the originality and in- 
ventive nuances it heralds is the 
best film to play the Palm Beach 

area this year. I enjoyed it im- 
mensely both times. 

—Jon R. Miller 



Whether one approves the film 
or not "The Killing of Sister 
George" may very well be this 
season's most controversial. Per- 
sonally, I did not like the film, 
but not for the usual reasons 
of unreal characters, poor acting, 
weak story, or bad adaptation. 
Rather, the film transgressed 
against my "Puritan morality. 

The film is based on Frank 
Marcus' (no D. H. Lawrence) 
story of three lesbians in modern 
England. The juxtaposition of the 
characters is powerful. One finds 
that three women with three dis- 
tinct psychological make-ups are 
lesbians for three very different 

Yet, this is a criterion based on 
personal conscience and not the 
story itself. I am beginning to 
feel that the quest for realism on 
stage and screen has reached the 
point of being overly sensational. 
With such upcoming productions 
as "Staircase" on screen (where 
Burton and Harrison portray male 
homosexuals) and "Geese" on 
stage (where I don't know who 
iportrays you know what) I feel 
that artistic freedom is over-ex- 
tending itself. 

The last love scene of Sister 
George is a realistic approach to 
lesbian love-making, which we all 
know exists. Therefore since we 
all know that it does exist, and 
we all know that people do free- 

ly express themselves in love- 
making, why must we have it 
flagrantly flashed to us? 

I somehow feel that in many 
recent productions, regardless of 
the author's purpose, the under- 
lying theme of sex has been made 
the overtone of the productions. 
When one reads Henry Miller, 
or D. H. Lawrence today, he 
senses the same quest fpr free- 
dom that Thomas Hardy suffered 
in a Victorian age. The quest for 
artistic freedom has legally been 
secured (via the Fanny Hill case). 
The "lewd and lascivious" clause 
of the pornography ruling is the 
greenlight to all artists, the ul- 
timate end to censorship. 

I believe that artists should be 
free to express themselves with 
due consideration to their audi- 
ences. I feel that when an at- 
mosphere of sensuality pervades 
an entire theatre (sounded like 
a panting parlor) as it did in 
the finale of Sister George, then 
the production has failed in Its 
responsibility to the audience. 

When a play, which failed is 
turned into a movie with two 
superstars and national advance 
publicity given to this film, then 
sensationalism is transcending 
realism. I do not recommend 
"The Killing of Sister George" 
because it simply carries a point 
too far. We all know that we 
need a variety of films, but In 
my mind the power of suggestion 
stilt works. Realism is necessary, 
sensationalism is dangerous in 
any movie.

TALLAHASSEE -Florida State 
University Acting President Stan- 
ley Marshall announced today the 
formation of a special division in 
the University to assist junior 
college transfers. 

These transfers, principally from 
public junior colleges in Florida, 
constituted most of the approx- 
imately 3,000 transfer students 
who enrolled last year. Their 
presence makes Florida State's 
junior class its largest. 

The new Division of Junior 
College Affairs, to be headed by 
a director, will coordinate and 
develop efforts by various de* 
partments and schools to serve 
the needs of incoming junior col- 
lege transfers, he said. 

General responsibilities of the 
new division will be: identifying 
and recruiting prospective trans- 
fer students; selecting faculty 
advisors to work with transfer 
students before and after they 
enter Florida State; re-consider- 
ation of the University's policy 
on transfer of academic credit; 
financial support of needy stu- 
dents, and coordination of efforts 
to improve instruction of junior 
college-prepared students. 

"It has become evident to us 
in the past few years that while 
we have made some impressive 
efforts for entering freshmen and 
graduate students, we have done 
relatively little for the large 
number of transfer students en- 
tering here every year," said Dr. 
Larry Chalmers, vice president 
for academic affairs. 

While Florida State has devel- 
oped some innovative instruction- 
al programs such as Cluster and 
FLEX for freshmen, for example, 
no such programs have been de- 
veloped for junior college trans- 
fers, Dr. Chalmers said. 

In an area such as financial 
aid, the typical junior college 
transfer is at a disadvantage 
compared with "native" FSU 
students here for the full four 
years, he said. He described a

break this cycle by early ids

students planning to attend FI«-

scholarships earmarked for sje 
cific junior colleges, Dr. Chalraai 

Some other possibilities Char 
mers outlined for the new to

Sports Roundup 

Men's Tennis 

The PBJC tennis team won two 
and lost two of its last four 
matches, as wins against Polk 
Junior College and St. John's 
Junior College helped soothe the 
losses to Central Florida and Mi- 
ami-Dade North. 

Central Florida and Miami- 
Dade North are two of the finest 
teams in Florida commented 
coach Harris McGirk Central 
Florida is the National Junior 
College Champion as well as the 
state champions. 

The Pacers, led by Walter Pow- 
ers, are playing solid tennis. 

Powers was the only winner 
for the team against Central Flor- 
ida. In eight junior college 
matches, he has lost only once. 

The strength of the team does 
not stop here.- Don Dickey, Dave 
Chambless, Richard Browning, 
Doug Remington, Bill Northrup, 
and Rod Macklin are steady per- 
formers who give the team great 

With almost half of the season 
gone, the tennis team is almost 
assured of a winning season. 
■ Their 6-2 record will be tested 
Friday, March 28, against Polk 
Junior College. The Pacers hope 
to repeat their earlier victory 
against Polk. 

Women's Tennis 

With the season drawing to a 
close and the state tournament 
Rearing, Coach Bobbie Lee 
Knowles and the women's tennis 
team are anxiously eyeing each 
remaining match. 

The record stands at 4-3 with 
four matches left on the schedule. 
The last away contest is sched- 
uled for Monday, March 17 

against Edison. The match which 
was to be held March 13 against 
Broward has been re-scheduled 
for April 8. The Pacers then play 
host for three home matches 
which finish regular season play. 
At present no information con- 
cerning the tournament is avail- 
able other than notice of their in- 
tentions to participate in the com- 

This writer would like to clar- 
ify, to all concerned, the contro- 
versy which has arisen from the 
March 10 issue. 

It should be stressed that Base- 
ball Coach Mel Edgerton and 
Athletic Director Ray Daugherty 
are not involved in a squabble. 
Both agreed to the need of a 
warning track, however, Edger- 
ton also felt the infield should 
be improved. 

* * * 

The Athletic Department has 
taken action to halt the excessive 
loss of foul balls into the canal 
behind the first base dugouts. 

According to Coach Edgerton, 
approximately eight baseballs 
are lost during a game, either 
by rolling in the canal off the 
bank, or just by dropping in. 

At $2.25 apiece, the bill for one 
game should be about $18, 

Now a fence has been erected 
along the canal to prevent the 
foul balls from rolling in. 

Edgerton said that since the 
fence was put up (according to 
the last few games) that only 
about four balls were lost. 

Although it is still possible for 
baseballs to drop in over the 
fence, they are stopped from 
rolling into the canal. 

Coach Edgerton's Pacers won 
their sixth game of the season 
last Thursday, making them the 
winningest baseball team ever at 

It took 10 innings to do it, but

PBJC was well represented in 
the Cripple Creek Surfing Contest 
as freshmen Ron Heavyside and 
Cliff Del Santo placed first and

According to Del Santo, the 
contest was based on the Eastern 
Association Rules, and surfers 
were judged on the length of their 
ride, the type of wave they chose 
to ride, the tightest position in 
the curl, and the best three out 
of five waves in a 12 minute time

Not only has the baseball team 
surpassed the five game winning 
tradition of the school, but has 
also won its first double-header 
in history, downing Edison Junior

The baseball team now appears

The confidence of Walter Pow- 
ers is obvious. 

One need only talk with him 
or take a look at his present un- 
beaten record to be assured of 
this For under the tremendous 
pressure of college tennis, such 
a record comes only from a 
strong belief in oneself. 

Powers, ranked no. 1 for the 
Pacers men's tennis team, indeed 
should be confident. Twelve years 
of tennis experience does much 
to keep one cool under fire on 
the courts. 

When asked to give what he 
felt were his strong points, this 
experience, coupled with a strong 
serve, was what he felt personally 
was responsible for putting him 
on top 

"I've got playing experience 
which a lot of other players don't 
have," her commented. "This is 
a big factor." 

How does tennis coach Harris 
McGirt rank Powers? He's a 
"top notch tennis player," re- 
plied the coach. "He's coming 
strong in attitude. 10O per cent 
improvement in psychology." 

Powers' ability on the courts 
can be traced, back to high 
school at John I. Leonard where 
he won the district competition 
in the eleventh grade and 
achieved runner-up honors in the 

This background makes one be- 
lieve that Powers is no idle 
boaster when he threatens: "I 
ought to win the state tourna- 
ment this year."

r~A Birdseye View Of The PBJC Campus"! 

Self-Evaluation Program Gets Under Way 
For Administration And Faculty Members 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber News Editor 
The Administration and faculty 
are now undergoing an intensive 
self-evaluation in preparation for 
re-accreditation of PBJC by the 
Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools. 

The self-study js aimed at an 

evaluation of every aspect of the 

college. It is being conducted by 

a steering committee appointed 

Dr. Harold Manor and di- 

xl by Dr. Charles Atwell. 

ter members of the steering 

nittee are Charles Sutherland 

e Social Sciences department, 

id Busselle of the Communi- 

ais department, Benjamin 

erts, of the Library Learning 

sources Center, who will edit 

i final report and Dean Robert, 

jordinator of research activities. 

""his term each department of 

tllege is conducting its own 

mental study," said AtwB. 

are evaluating the courses, 

content and the way they 

, taught. 

In August, 10 committees will 
be set up to study different as- 
pects of the college. These in- 

clude its: purpose, organization 
and administration, educational 
program, financial resources, fac- 
ulty, library, student personnel, 
physical plant, special activities 
and planning for the future. 

In these areas the committees 
must follow a detailed manual of 
questions. For example, under the 
educational program they must 
consider admissions, enrollment, 
curriculum, instruction and sev- 
eral other areas. 

A thorough study of the faculty 
necessitates consideration of re- 
cruitment, academic preparation, 
financial provisions, teaching 
loads and other duties and re- 
lated areas. 

With the evaluation of these 
areas an institution can deter- 
mine its strength and weaknesses, 
problems and solutions. 

Participation in the self-study 
program is required periodically 
of all members of the Southern 
Association of Colleges and 
Schools. It is the only method 
by which accreditation is reaf- 

According to AtwelL this will 
involve "a very close look at a 

college wide level." This phase 
of the evaluation process will 
continue throughout next year. 
Next spring the campus is to be 
visited by a team of evaluators 
from the association. 

The team will spend three days 
looking at the college and exam- 
ining the report of the self-evalu- 
ation, after which they will make 
their recommendations to the 
Commission on Colleges ot the 
Southern Association of Colleges 

and Schoois, for action on re- 
accreditation in Dec. 1970. 

The entire process has many 
advantages, the foremost of 
which is its use as a "process of 
self-improvement," stated Atwell. 

In addition it is of benefit to 
the student attending PBJC as 
an accredited junior college with 
transferable credits. It is an ad- 
vantage for the student to be as- 
sured of at least certain mini- 
mum standards.

A display of commercial cook- 
ing equipment for Food Servks 
Management students at Palm 
Beach Junior College next week 
will also be open to the public, 
according to Mrs. Martha Am- 
brosio of the college staff. 

Florida Power and Light Com-

March 25, 26, and 27, displays 
"a much larger variety of com- 
mercial equipment than is gen- j

Mrs. Ambrosio said. 

Persons interested In institu- 
tional kitchen equipment are par- 
ticularly invited, although such 
items as a microwave cooker, a

terest to the general public. 

The mobile van containing the 
display will be set up in the park- 
ing lot south of the administra-

Faculty Senate Passes Dress Code Resolution 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Bdttor-In-Chief 

The faculty senate Thursday, after much 
controversy over a clause concerning dress 
in the library after 6 p.m., passed a student 
resolution providing changes in the present 
campus dress code. 

The issue now goes before the Board of 
Trustees for their final approval. 

The resolution provided for: 

• The allowance of long side-burns. 

• Shorts and slacks for women during the 
spring terms. 

• Shorts for men during the spring terms. 

• Shorts and slacks in the library after 
6 p.m. 

The only dissention on the matter was in 

reference to the fourth point of the resolu- 
tion — shorts and slacks in the library. 

Otis Harvey, coordinator of evening classes, 
proposed an amendment, which later was 
voted down, limiting the wearing of shorts 
and slacks to only spring sessions. 

"It's impractical to have two sets of rules," 
Harvey stated, "for buildings on campus." 

He also pointed out that evening classes 
are conducted in the library, therefore it 
would be difficult to enforce two sets of 
dress standards. 

Engineering graphics instructor, Charles 
Connell who holds classes on the first floor 
of the library, requested that faculty mem- 
bers should no longer be enforcers of the 
code, stating, "I don't want to be a police- 
man over hippies in bell bottoms." 

Wiley C. Douglass, director of library serv- 
ices, when questioned on the library's view- 
point, remarked that half ■ his staff was in 
favor of the resolution and the other half 
was against it. He added that shorts and 
slacks are allowed in all of the local public 
libraries and of "the two area colleges, Flor- 
ida Atlantic University allows it and Palm 
Beach Atlantic does not. 

Douglass also stated that every night at 
least one person is asked to leave the library 
because of dress code violations. 

The resolution is now feeing sent to the 
Board of Trustees with the favorable recom- 
mendations of the faculty senate. The new 
ruling takes effect on acceptance by the

Judicial Invalidates SGA Election 

PBJC And FAU Merge 
Info One University 

PBJC and Florida Atlantic Uni- 
versity of Boca Raton, have 
merged, in concept, to form what 
has long been wished for, a four- 
year university on two campuses. 

This cooperative arrangement 
to be in effect for the May gradu- 
ates from PBJC, offers many 
benefits to the student. 

The required entrance examin- 
ation to FAU given on their cam- 
pus, is planned to be given on 
PBJC's campus in the Auditori- 

um prior to graduation, saving 
time and work for many students, 
who would otherwise have to go 
to a great deal of trouble to take 
the exam at FAU. 

The entrance exam includes 
two tests: The School and Col- 
lege Ability Test:, lasting 70 min- 
utes, and the Cooperative English 
Test, covering 40 minutes. 

Should the student be unable 
to take the exam here, he may 
take it at FAU as it has previ- 
ously been done.

PBJC Trustees have decided to 
build a new Administration Build-

The trustees have awarded a 
contract to W. G. Lassiter Co., 
Ibc, at a cost of $619,290 after 
deducting alternates costing $20,- 
g00. The building had been esti- 
mated at $425,000. 

The board delayed action when 
j^js for the Administration Build- 
lag and a Food Service Manage- 
ment Building were first received,

ggilrnates and funds were not 
available for both, making a 
gjjoice necessary. 

^ committee, headed by trustee 
mjaynard C. Hamblin, studied al- 
ternative possibilities, and report- 
^j last Thursday in favor of the 

Lassiter bid for the Administra- 
tion Building. 

Hamblin noted the specialized 
nature of the Food Service Man- 
agement Building, and said ar- 
rangements are being worked out 
with a local restaurant and hospi- 
tal for rental of some of the fa- 
cilities that would have been in 
the new building. 

He said the Food Service Man- 
agement Building was not being 
cancelled, but would be postponed 
and re-advertised when funds be- 
come available. 

The new Administration Build- 
ing will be a two story structure 
located between the Data Proc- 
essing Building, which it will re- 
semble, and the current Adminis- 
tration Building, scheduled for re- 
modeling into a Finance Center. 

by Jacquie Boiling 

'Com'ber Associate Editor 

In a special called session, the 
Judicial Department of PBJC has 
ruled the Executive Elections of 
April 2 and 3 invalid and has 
called for a new election. 

This action was taken after Vin- 
cent Matteis, former candidate 
for the SGA presidency, contested 
the validity of the election. 

Matteis contested on the grounds 
that the polls did not open and 
close at the times specified in the 
election rules, and that there was 
no timekeeper during the cam- 
paign speeches, given in the SAC 
Lounge on Tuesday, April 1. 

Matteis first voiced his contest- 
ment after the election results 
were announced on April 2. At 
this time Matteis had already 
been disqualified from the elec- 
tion for violating the election 
rule of. displaying a poster in an 
illegal area on election day. 

Directly after the announcement 
the Elections Board, made up of 
Larry Winter, Paul Buxton, and 
Jim VanGilder, held an emer- 
gency meeting and decided that 
Matteis' claims did not warrant 
a new election. 

In an official statement Issued 
by the Elections Board, Chair- 
man Larry Winter announced that 
due to technical difficulties on the 
morning of April 1, the polls did 
not open until. 8:35 a.m. 

To recompense for this, the vot- 
ing machine in the South SAC 
Lounge wcas kept open until 4:00 
p.m. that day, instead of closing 
at the specified time of 3:30 p.m. 

Chairman Winter also stated in 
regards to Matteis' claim of no 
timekeeper at the speeches, that 
the burden of proof would have 
to be placed on the accuser— 
namely Matteis. Even though he 
had earlier admitted that there 
was no official timekeeper in at- 
tendance at the speeches. 

After the Elections Board in- 
formed Matteis of their denial of 
his request, they told him that if 
he desired, they would carry his 
appeal to the Judicial Depart- 

This was not required of the 
Board, and as the SGA Constitu- 
tion now reads, Matteis could not 
have taken the appeal himself. 

Matteis asked that this action 
be taken and Chairman Winter 
assented to do it. 

The Judicial Department, is 
comprised of student members 
Andy Cantor, Mary Woodcock, 
and Betsy Johnston, and faculty 
members Elizabeth Davey; Dean 
of Women, Robert Moss; Dean of 
Men, C. Errol Hicks; political sci- 
ence instructor, and Marion Mc- 
Neely, Dean of Student Activities, 
deliberated for almost two hours 
before issuing their statement in- 
validating the election. 

Even though the Judicial De- 

partment decided against the 
Election Board, they commended 
the Board for its handling of the 

After the decision of the Judi- 
cial Department was announced, 
Winter stated the format of the 
new election.

day and Thursday, April 8 and

there was a candidates meeting, 
after which campaigning official- 
ly opened.

od to follow. This is to give the

Graduate Evaluation 
A Service To Campus 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber News Editor 

As part of the effort to involve 
students in the self-evaluation of 
the campus prior to reaffirma- 
tion of accreditation by the South- 
ern Association of Colleges and 
Schools in 1970, questionnaires 
have been sent to students who 
graduated in May, 1965 and May, 

The questionnaire, designed by 
Dean Robert Moss, approached 
the student on all aspects of the 

It was completely anonymous 
so as to receive as candid an 
opinion as possible. 

"I can't Identify any student," 
said Moss, -"they can be free to 
answer." Many he added, did 
sign their names. 

Graduates were given a chance 
to respond "negatively and posi- 
tively" said Moss. "Some said the 
whole place ought to be destroyed 
by an atomic bomb but these 

were far outweighed by good re- 
actions," he added. 

Hoping to pinpoint areas need- 
ing strength, the questionnaire 
solicited opinions on curricula, 
extracurricular activities, services 
and facilities. 

They were designed to take 
only a small amount of time to 
fill out and returns have been 
steadily returning. 

Approximately 265 returns have 
been received by Moss. "What is 
discouraging is that many intend 
to but haven't bothered return- 
ing them," Moss said. 

Two forms were sent to each 
graduate with a specified major, 
one evaluating the general college 
and one evaluating the depart- 
ment of the major. 

An evaluation of the returns 
will be submitted in the self-study 
report: to the Southern Associa- 
tion of Schools and Colleges. 

"The whole purpose was to take 
a hard, honest look at what's go- 
ing on," stated Moss.

'Comber Concepts 



An Open Mind 

The Student Government Judicial Department should be 
commended for their recent decision to invalidate last week's 
SGA executive elections. 

The department's ability to approach the issue with an 
open mind has uplifted the faultering status of SGA, which the 
elections board had plunged the organization into, by turning 
down a legitimate contestment of the election. 

Their denial gave the impression that the personality 
conflict between Vincent Matteis and election board officials 
was the only motivation behind the decision. 

Even after Bob Mandell, who had won the presidency, 
stated publicly that he would like to have a re-election on 
the basis that he wanted a true mandate from the people, 
the elections board refused to call another election. 

It seems that broadmindedness may be the answer to 
all of SGA's problems - for the broadmindedness of the 
judicial department may have saved the future of SGA. 


Space Is Spooky 


While at Cape Kennedy covering the launch of Apollo 
9, 1 placed a small envelope in the Beachcomber office marked 
"Space Information." 

Not knowing what to expect upon return, I would like 
to share with you what I found. 

The envelope was cleverly rewritten . . . "This envelope 
takes up Space." 

The payload was inside. Here are the bits of information 
I received: 

"My question is, did man come before space or did 
space come before man? Signed: Neitche." 

"Space is Spooky. Signed: Russell Schweickart." 

"All we do is go around and around and around — I 
can't take it! Signed: J. McDivitt." 

"Space is big and dark without light! Signed: John Glenn." 

Plus, a plastic straw marked genuine anti-wind tunnel. 

Another small bag was marked space meteorites which 
had about three or four small rocks in it and an exact replica 
of a screw which held the capsule together. 

Last of all a note signed anonymously saying, "Space is 
lot of nothing," 


SGA Involved For Students 


For the past two semesters 
there has been the complaint 
that the SGA has done nothing 
for the individual student. 

The executive dept., the various 
boards, and most of all the Sen- 
ate have been the targets for at- 
tack by our "involved" students. 

My question to you is: Is your 
SGA as inactive as you the stu- 
dents, seem to believe or is your 
SGA actually busy trying to make 
campus activities more enjoyable 
for you without the help of the 

For a brief review, let's start 
with the senate elections in the 
fall term. There were only 13 stu- 
dents who filed for 12 sophomore 
senate seats. 

The candidates were given a 
chance to air their views and 
give campaign speeches to the

In fact, only 35 (if that many)

candidates and the majority were

Then came the time to file 
for freshmen seats. This time 
only 10 people filed to campaign 
for 12 seats. 

The Leadership and Service 
Board was forced to accept ap- 
plicants to fill the remaining 
seats. Is the SGA to blame? 

Contrary to what many believe, 
the SGA has been active. The 
SGA is responsible for bringing 
"The Association" at a discount 

The SGA has sponsored many 
dances to which the student body 
was admitted free. 

SGA has also brought on cam- 
pus "The Grass Roots" and the 
"Mama's Boys." 

Now let's take the student sen- 
ate. The senate has established

'Comhei Feature Editor 

For those political-minded stu- 
dents the Coffee Information Serv- 
ice has published a pamphlet en- 
titled "How to Win Campus 

The fifteen page booklet holds 
many answers to the questions 
about campaigning on the pres- 
ent-day college or university cam- 
pus, and was prepared with the 
assistance of student leaders rep- 
resenting many types of cam- 

Campaigning begins, of course, 
with organization. This involves 
selecting a campaign manager 
who is responsible for taking the 
entire load of organizing on his 
(or her) shoulders. Duties should 
be doled out specifically, from 
sign painters to speakers and ad- 
visory staff. 

The booklet suggests having a 
liaison with the administration. 
This in itself provides a good fu- 
ture source of vocal support. 

The key word is key people. 
They are your entree to important 
organizations and interest groups. 

The pamphlet lists as its sec- 
ond sub -heading "Planning to 
Win." This is, of course, the en- 
tire purpose of the campaign. 
And it is easier said than done! 
This includes strategy and a for- 
mal campaign plan. 

Strategy requires a well-defined 
and sound platform. When choos- 
ing a platform no group or or- 
ganization on campus should be 
overlooked, no matter how small 
or large. 

Each issue should be specific 
and should offer definite solutions 
to student problems. 

Research should not be over- 
looked in campaign strategy. A 
good research team can come up 
with valuable information through 
opinion polls, checking back is- 
sues of the school paper and con- 
ferences with various groups on 

"How to Win Campus Elec- 

tions" outlines campaign tactics 
in six divisions. 

• "Communications to the In- 
fluentials." This includes contact- 
ing presidents of organizations, 
student government leaders, rep- 
resentatives, and social organiza- 
tions, for the purpose of identify- 
ing himself (the candidate) and 
seeking their opinions and sug- 

• Special interest groups must 
be informed of your candidacy 
and of your practical solutions to 
their problems. 

• Set up a speaker's bureau. 
The booklet suggests that capable 
speakers be selected to speak on 
the candidate's behalf, especially 
using the well-tested "testimoni- 
al" technique. 

Surveys taken recently indicate 
that the letters-to-the-editor sec- 
tion of the campus newspaper is 
one of the most widely read sec-

there were some allocations of 
funds, but why and how much? ;

was to bring a toy, which was '

Berry, whose guitar and old rock n' roll was relished and 
assimilated while doing "Memphis," couldn't resist a "Help 
me Mister Bassman."

Sweetwater created an electric buzz that continued relent-

singer Nancy Nevins' voice can get it on.

Charly And Pretty Poison 

In a film world which produces 
everything from "The Killing of 
Sister George" to "Winnie the 
Pooh," I have found a film which 
is the happy medium. 

"Charly" is a beautiful experi- 

The story is about the life of 
a moronic simpleton who under- 
goes surgery and becomes a gen- 

The movie is by no means a 
comedy, but rather a poignant 
look at our social values and our 
concepts of love. 

When Charly reaches intellec- 
tual superiority, the things he 
sees around him form a powerful 
indictment against our way of 

But more than a story of a 
simpleton transition, more than a 
film of moral evaluation, "Char- 
ly" is the most beautiful love 
story since "Romeo and Juliet." 

The interaction of Charley, pow- 
erfully played by Cliff Robert- 
son, and his instructor, portrayed 
by the beautiful Claire Bloom, fi- 
nally shows the ultimate unself- 
ishness in true love. 

I am forceably restraining my- 
self from revealing the story, 
only so you can fully enjoy it. 

I have seen four or five of this 
year's most notable male per- 
formances, and find that Cliff 
Robertson's portrayal of "Char- 
ly" is tremendous. 

He is neither as triumphant as 
Ron Moody (Fagin in "Oliver"), 
nor as captivating as Alan Bates 
(The Fixer), -but somehow he did 
more for me than either. 

I can only say that with the 
price of movies what they are, 
most of us hate to view a tur- 
key. Well. I recommend your 

seeing "Charly," You'll feel bet- 
ter because you did.

The Pacers found the mark in

they defeated their opponents 2-1. 

April 8 and 9 proved to be a

Pacers fell victim to Miami-Dade

Musical Promotion 
A Desperate Effort' 

by Jim Scruggs 
'Comber Staff Writer 

At first glance, the music coming from the gymnasium 
on certain afternoons to the tune of "Take Me Out to the 
Ball Game" might appear ludicrous. 

The average passer-by no doubt stops, listens, gives a 
short chuckle, and then goes on his way, shaking his head 
and wondering what the athletic department is doing. 

If one understands the situation, however, what the ath- 
letic department is attempting to do becomes evident. The 
music represents a final desperate effort to instill in an ap- 
athetic student body a little interest in Pacer baseball. 

All other efforts to encourage PBJC students to come 
out and support their team during the home games have 
ended in failure, as the numerous vacant seats in the bleachers 
can grimly testify. 

Even during Open House when the lines in front of 
the bar-b-que pits and the tours of the various buildings 
sported large enthusiastic numbers of interested parents, stu- 
dents, and visitors, only a small handful of fans found their 
way to Pacer Field, to witness a fine exhibition by the Pacer 

Very few students ever display enough school pride to 
watch the team in action and give them their support, but 
then everyone wonders what happened when the team loses 
a contest. 

Ask any of the players and they'll tell you that the sheer 
numbers of spectators and the encouragement they can give 
makes a big difference in their ability to play. 

It's just possible that if more people showed a genuine 
interest in PBJC baseball, there wouldn't be any need for 
the loudspeakers and the music that makes some people stop 
and laugh.

Board Of Trustees Postpone Action 

Glynn Lashes Out Against Dress Code Changes 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

Dean of Student Personnel, 
Paul J. Glynn reinforced Kis 
sand opposing any changes in the 
present college dress code before 
the District Board of Trustees 
Thursday, stating that he "ob- 
jected to yielding to a small 
f group of people making a lot of 
i raise." 

Glynn's comments refuted Dr. 
Harold C. Manor's presentation 
aboard in which he compliment- 
ed the students on the use of 
proper channels and then recom- 
saided to the board that they

Discussion concerning the reso- 
lution, which was sent to the 
Trustees prematurely to provide 
for the incorporation of any 
change in the next edition of the 
handbook, was postponed to afford 
SGA Senators who were instru- 
mental in the presenting of the 
legislation an opportunity to speak 
before the board. 

Glynn, who has led the opposi- 
tion of any dress code change, 
defended the need of dress code 
stating that "dress is just as 
much a discipline as communica- 
tions, philosophy or social science, 
and out of all of the institutions 
engaged in either a two-year or 
baccalaureate program, none of 
them include sloppy dress, in-

formalities or anything whatso- 

He further commented that he 
asked SGA to bring local busi- 
nessmen on campus to question 
them as to their views of a mod- 
ification in dress policy — and 
this was not done. 

However, businessmen were 
contacted individually by mem- 
bers of the dress code review- 
ing committee, and a majority of 
them agreed that the allowance 
of sideburns, shorts and slacks 
would not be detrimental to the 
college image. 

"It has been my experience 
that when you open the door on 
dress and discipline and behavior, 
you open a crack and, this is 
what the country has done," the 
dean continued. "I'm very much 
against it." 

Glynn then pointed out that, 
this dress policy was "drawn 
over 20 years ago by both fac- 
ulty and students and it is not 
all that difficult for students to 
follow. All dress patterns fit much 
closer to the type of self-disci- 
pline young people need in learn- 
ing" how to dress and behave." 

The issue, which passed the 
faculty senate two weeks ago widi 
overwhelming approval, according 

to Glynn should have been, and 
usually is turned over to 'the en- 
tire faculty for their vote. 

Faculty Senate vice-chairman, 
Donald Busselle stated that Glynn 
who is a member of the senate 
had every legal opportunity to re- 
quest a faculty-wide vote but de- 
clined to do so. 

Mrs. Hugh Dortch, termed the 
resolution as quite conservative. 
"They haven't even raised the 
question of wearing shorts, slacks 
or levis to art class, which I 
ant told is about as important as 
wearing shorts to gym class. I 
would even be in favor of adding 

Chairman of the Board, R. D. 
Hill who remained undecided 
stated that "before we get through 
with it, I will probably vote for 

According to Glynn, enforce- 
ment of changes would be ex- 
tremely difficult. "It's next to im- 
possible to enforce dress policy 
when you have faculty members 
walking around in direct viola- 
tion of it." 

"You won't see what you used 
to on this campus," he added. 
"And if this door is opened, you 
(the board) can enforce because 
I don't think I am going to be 
able to. As you say this may be 
a conservative request, but once" 
we open this door, I hata to think 
what more is to come." 

In reply to Glynn's statement 
regarding problems in enforcing 
the changes, Mrs. Dortch stated 
that, "If ihere exists a problem 
of enforcement, wouldn't it be 
easier to legalize what Is already 
going on." 

The trustees plan to render a 
decision on the issue during next 
month's meeting.

The Florida State Road Depart-

request for installation of traffic 
lights at the Lake Worth Road 
and the Congress Ave. South en- 
trances of the campus. 

The request for traffic study to 
determine the need of semi-auto- 
matic signals was formally made 
by President, Harold C. Manor, 
acting on the recommendations of 
the College Safety Committee, 
chaired by Social Science instruc- 
tor David Forebay. 

The SRD pointed out in their 
report that ''traffic volumes, de- 
lay times, accidents and other 
conditions indicated that me in- 
stallation of traffic signals would 
not contribute to better control 
of traffic nor would it tend to 
reduce traffic accident potential." 

The report, however, did pro- 
vide for Hie college to petition 
again in 12 months.

The Student's Champion 
No Champion At All 

Dean of Student Personnel, Paul J. Glynn, lashed out 
against changes in the college dress policy, Thursday, during 
the District Board of Trustees meeting stating that "once 
you open the door on dress and discipline, you open a crack 
and this is what is wrong with the country today." 


Glynn also stated during the meeting, that he objected 
"yielding to a small group that's making a lot of noise." 

The small group that Glynn is referring to is the faculty 
and student body of PBJC, as both have expressed a desire 
for a more liberal dress code policy. 

(.continued on page 2) 

Page 2 April 23, 1969 

No Champion At All . . . 

(continued from page 1) 

The dean also pointed out that this policy was drawn 
up over 20 years ago by both faculty and students and there 
is nothing in it that would be difficult to follow. 

Again it seems ironic that anyone can possibly think that 
in a changing world (especially" fashion and dress) a policy 
developed 20 years ago concerning dress could still be ac- 
ceptable today. 

In another statement Glynn is quoted as saying, if you 
open this door on dress and discipline, I hate to think what 
more is to come." 

Th?s comment reverts back to the old philosophy of 
"children should be seen and not heard." Students are taught 
to become involved in the college - not to be apathetic, 
but when they are given a chance to put this education into 
practice they are labeled as a small group making a lot of 

It seems that Glvnn, who claims to be the champion of 
the student, doesn't "think that the students of his college 
should be heard even when they conform to college procedure. 

In contrast President Harold C. Manor, who has been 
cast primarily by Glynn as the villain in the dress con- 
troversy, seems to be the one administrator who is sincerely 
for the students. 

Although his personal feelings tend to lean against changes 
in dress policy, he has listened to, respected, and complimen- 
ted, the students who have spoken up for these changes. His 
favorable recommendation to the board may also be the de- 
termining factor as to whether or not the board passes the 
proposed changes. 

Anyone can talk to the present generation but few can or 
will, take the time to listen. While student personnel pro- 
fesses to be the representative of the student, it seems that 
some of them have been too busy talking when they should 
have been listening. 

Sending Books Overseas 
Not Representative Of PBJC 

MS§£y : ':-JM An Eulogy Of Hate And Prejvd'ue 


I feel that the recent book drive 
was not in the best interest of 
PBJC: the school, administration, 
faculty, student body, or the club 
which chose this drive as its 

The position taken by this insti- 
tute, both in support of, and the 
non-dissident from, is somewhat 

The decision of the said drive 
was in all intent, very good, 

(1) Will PBJC benefit fullest 
from it? 

(2) I question the value of send- 
ing books overseas or for that 
matter even out of the country, 
when recent national studies have 
shown the conditions of migrant 
children of Palm Beach County. 

(3) The request was made to 
secondary schools in this county 
to donate 'books to the drive. Not 
only do the "migrants suffer, but 
many other schools, in urban, as 
well as rural areas, as the Glades, 
suffer the tremendous lack — not 
only library but text books as 

(4) In Lake Worth, a relatively 
small school — Lake Osborne Ele- 
mentary, has a library of less 
than three books per student, and 
a librarian who travels from an- 
other school one day per week to

"Operetta' Vignettes 
A Memorable Evening

To Live And Die In Dixie 


A music, lover but absolute 
hypocrite, I never attended a PB- 
JC College Singers production un- 
til three weeks before graduation. 
Then I went to see the College 
Singers presentation, Operetta 
Vignettes, on Wednesday evening. 
And now I could just kick my- 
self for not going to see others. 

The production was fantastic- 
one of my most enjoyable eve- 
nings since entering PBJC. 

The program was very versa- 
tile and appealed to opera, bal- 
lad, show tune, and spiritual lov- 

Mike Ellis, Shirley Younkins, 
Marta Stinchcomb, and Richard 
Henning, as well as the many 
other soloists, were outstanding. 

Dancers Gig Kramer, Chris 
Holter, Marlene Roughton, and 
Pamela Schreckengost added 
movement to the program, even 
though it was by no means dull. 

The program opened with ex- 
cerpts from the operetta "Die 
Fledermaus." From there the 
mood changed to Scotland and the 

lilting tunes of Brigadoon, featur- ~ 
ing many talented soloists 

"Porgy and Bess," a spiritual J 
musical by George Gershwin was 
next, with feature soloists, Mr. ; 
Walter Locke, county music cos- \ 
sultant, and Miss Patricia John- \ 
son, vocal music director at Job | 
I. Leonard. 

The fourth section of the pro _ 
gram was devoted to music free ] 
Leonard Bernstein's West SMs < 
Story. This was my favorite. 

A feline fight scene to the bea: 
of a pounding drum opened this 
portion of the concert Then ite 
haunting ballads of a love des-^ 
tined to die in this world toot | 
over. "One Hand, One Heart' 5 
"Tonight," and "Somewhere 1 
sent chills up my spine as 1 si 
in the darkened auditorium. 

When the applause died awajf 
and the lights flicked on I s2j 
stunned and motionless I W 
just taken part in a beautiful a 
perience — the beauty of co& 
munication through music.

Although he cannot sign any players until after their sea- 
son's have terminated, it is possible he has a few in mind. 

As it stands now, the baseball team has a 29 game sched- 
ule and it is hoped that they increase, at least, to a 30 or at 
most, a 40 game schedule for next season.

Pacer Baseball Season Best Yet 
Despite Ending On A Dismal Note 

by Jim Scruggs 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Although the Pacers finished the 
baseball season on a somewhat 
dismal note falling victim to Edi- 
son Junior College on Wednesday, 
coach Mel Edgerton can rightly 
look back over the season with 
pride and a sense of accomplish- 

To take over the reigns as 
coach and during the first year 
as head mentor pace a team here- 
tofore noted for anything but a 
winning reputation to a fine 12- 
17 overall record deserves recog- 

But a winning team is com- 
posed of much more than just the 
coach, and Edgerton was quick 
to comment on the players' per- 
formances. "We did real well. Es- 
pecially since a lot of players 
had to play a lot of positions." 

This was in reference to play- 
ers such as James Arpin, Dan 
Bigbie, Bill Rhoden and others 
who were forced to play a num- 
ber of different positions during 
the season. "I'm real pleased with 
the season," summed up the 
up the coach. 

Quizzed as to his hopes for the 
coming season, Edgerton foresees 
a promising one. 

"I hope to have a .500 record 
in the conference. We were 7-15 
in conference play this year. 
Next year we ought to be in bet- 
ter shape." 

Women Netters 
On The Incline 

'Each year we seem to get a 
little better." This comment from 
women's tennis coach Bobbie Lee 
Knowles pretty well sums up the 
progress this past season for the 

Two points were captured from 
Broward and one from Miami- 
Dade South which previously had 
not been done. 

Also the Pacers traveled to the 
state tournament where they 
placed in a three way tie for 
sixth place, sharing, the honors 
with Manatee and Indian River. 
"We did better than ever," com- 
mented Miss Knowles. 

Better pitching was noted as 
one area in which improvement 
is foreseen. 

The roster for next year may 
see several outstanding athletes 
from area schools. 
• Edgerton was eyeing this as he 
commented, "If I can get my 

share of the prospects, then we'll 
do all right." 

The Lake Worth area is expect- 
ed to yield a bountiful supply of 
good athletes, but Riviera Beach 
and Seacrest are being eyed for 
prospects as well. 

Trustees Pass Proposed Changes In Dress Code 


by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

After six months of heated debate and controversy, 
the PBJC Board of Trustees approved student pro- 
posed dress code changes, Thursday, by an unanimous 

Changes include, the allowing of shorts and slacks 
for women during the spring terms, the allowing 
of shorts for men during the spring term, the wearing 
of shorts and slacks for women, and shorts for men 
in the library after 6 p.m. during all terms and the 
allowing of long side bums for men. 

These changes take effect immediately. 

Dean of Student personnel, Paul J. Glynn who spoke 
out against the dress code revisions at the April 17 
meeting of the District Board of Trustees, was out of 
town and unable to attend Thursday meeting. 

"Our students should be commended for the pro- 
cedure they used in presenting these changes," said 
board member Maynard Hamblin, "they should also 
he commended on their careful thinking in arriving 
8t these revisions."

First action taken on the dress code was on Jan. 
30 when the student senate passed a resolution setting 
up a committee to review the present dress policy. 

The committee, which was composed of Glynn, 
Dean Robert Moss, Dean Elizabeth Davey,' SGA Sena- 
tor Edward DeBellevue, and Karen Moore, was chaired 
by Bill Wilkerson. 

Shortly after the first meeting, Glynn circulated 
a memorandum, stating "we (the deans) feel very 
strongly that the present dress code is the best of 

the collective thinking of the deans, students, faculty 
and administration. We are against any changes. 

A second meeting of the reviewing committee was 
then called, this time chaired by Senator DeBellevue. 
Again no action was taken as the deans refused to 
give into any changes. 

SGA then initiated what president Rodney Smith 
termed their most "Comprehensive poll" to determine 
what changes the students were mostly interested in. 

All of the recently passed changes were favored 
by more than 50 per cent of the students polled. 

A resolution was then submitted to the students 
where it was passed by a vote of 18-1, on Feb. 11. 

The legislation was then sent to the faculty senate 
for their approval, and on April 10 an overwhelming 
majority of faculty senators voted in favor of the 

The Resolution was then approved by the District 
Board of Trustees, last Thursday. 

Edward DeBellevue who chaired the second dress 
code reviewing committee presented the resolution 
to the board.

The Voice Is Heard 

The voice of the students has been heard at PBJC. 

Last Thursday the District Board of Trustees passed 
unanimously student proposed changes in the college dress 
code policy. 

We feel that the students involved directly with these 
proposed changes should be complimented highly on their 
method of procedure as well as the careful consideration 
they used in determining what the students want. 

We feel that the administration and the trustees of Palm 
Beach Junior College should be highly complimented also. As 
we have stated in a previous editorial, "Anyone can talk to 
the present generation but few can or will take the time to 

Both the Administration and the trustees have taken the 
time to listen.

Count Reaches 2,311 

Enrollment Sets New Record 

A small gain in basic enroll- 
ment brought the student count 
to a new high for the first session 
of the Spring Term, with more 
yet to come, according to Regis- 
trar Laurence Mayfield. 

The count reached 2,311 Mon- 
day, the first day of classes after 
late registration, with extension 
courses in Belle Glade and work- 
shop courses still to be reported. 

Last year's enrollment was 
2,252, largest In history during 
this part of the year. The all-time 
record enrollment was in the Fall 
of 1958, with 5,279 students. 

Still to be reported this term 
a'e three extension courses and 
workshops for the Game and Fish 
Workshop and an Interior Design 
Workshop, both of which met 
Monday for the first time. 

A workshop in Environmental 
Science was scheduled to begin 
Tuesday, May 13, and a work- 
shop in Blueprint Reading for 
the Building Trades was sched- 
uled for Thursday, May 15. 

Registration for workshops is 
at the first class^ meeting, and 
in some instances students are al- 
lowed to begin on the second class 
meeting if the meeting room is 
not filled. 

The first session of the Spring 
Term ends June 20, with classes 
for (he second six-week session 
to begin June 24. 

"The Spring Term was split into 
two sessions partly to allow high 
school graduates to begin college 
shortly after graduation if they 
desire," Mayfield said. 

"But the last day for them to 
make application is June 2," he 
warned. "Every year we have 

students who intend to come to 
this session, but wait too late to

Author Turns lewis Producer 


"The Arrangement," the phe- 
nomenally popular novel that cre- 
ated such a stir in the book world, 
is nearing the screen. 

Moviemaker Elia Kazan, who 
wrote the book, has produced and 
directed the film of "The Ar- 
rangement" from his own screen- 

Shooting was recently com- 
pleted at the Warner Bros. - Seven 
Arts Studios in Burbank and Ka- 
zan is now supervising editing. 
The picture is scheduled to be re- 
leased this fall. 

It was expected that Kazan 
would bring his block-buster novel 
to the screen with the kind of 
cast that reflected the stature of 
the property. 

He has. 

The roster of stars is headed by 
Kirk Douglas, Faye Dunaway, 
Deborah Kerr, Richard Boone and 
Hume Cronyn. An exciting new- 
comber making her screen debut 
in the film is 18-year-old Dianne 

As a novel, "The Arrangement" 
made publishing history. In the 
original hard-cover edition, it was 
one of the ten top best sellers for 
42 weeks, the most successful 
book of the year. 

As a paperback, it had the 
largest first printing in history— 
a whopping 2,400,000 copies. And 

that was only the first printing, 
Warner Bros. - Seven Arts bought 
the screen rights for $500,000. 

"The Arrangement" is the story 
of the American Everyman — and 
his women. In the midst of plenty 
and ease, Kazan tells us, we are 
baffled and desperate and de- 

The focal character of "The Ar- 
rangement" is Eddie Anderson 
(nee Evangelos Topouzoglu). 

Eddie is the ad agency man 
who seems to have it made — a 
brilliant career, a devoted wife, 
a fast car, a faster plane, a big 
pool and a beautiful mistress. 

These are the arrangements by 
which Eddie lives. And when he 
realizes the >hollowness of his "ar- 
ranged" existence, he "flips out" 
and desperately tries to shape a 
new life. 

Kirk Douglas plays the harried, 
hungering Eddie Anderson in a 
performance that looms as the 
most explosive of his notable ca- 

Faye Dunaway, the memorable 
Bonnie of "Bonnie and Clyde," is 
Eddie's lusty mistress, Gwen. 
Deborah Kerr brings her special 
grace and warmth to the part of 
Eddie's patient, loyal wife. 

Richard Boone is the immigrant 

father whom Eddie loves — 

Hume Cronyn portrays the. 
friend and lawyer who tnes m\ 
help Eddie through the crises M 
overwhelm him. The loving daugh- 
ter who lives in the shadow of 
Eddie's tormenting dilemma a 
Diane Hull. 

Kazan's production of "Tae A* > 
rangement" marks the first tins j 
that an author has made & ; 
movie version of his own «» 

However, this is far from ti* j 
first time that Kazan has broagfe 
a major property to the scree;. 

Films of this order that Kais 
has directed include "Gentleman* 
Agreement," "On the Water- 
front," "East of Eden" ^and A 
Streetcar Named Desire " 

Kazan's last film before Us 
Arrangement" was "Amena 
America," which he produced k- 
directed in 1964. ,, 

Between then and the start n 
production of "The Arraign- 
ment," his principal project w*

Students also have served or 
are serving on "search" commit- 
tees at Georgetown University, 
Davidson College, Hartwick Col- 
lege and the University of Ore-

An increasingly number of in-

six administrative officers. 

The council will be the insti- 
tution's chief deliberative and 
legislative body responsible for 
long-range planning and for di- 
recting the activities of the en-

At the State University of New

faculty and administrators will 
vote this spring on a new com- 
munity government plan that 
would establish a policy-making 
university assembly with a ratio 
of five faculty members to three 
students to two administrators. 

At Upper Iowa College, two stu- 
dents have been added with full 
voting privileges to the college's 
executive committee, which for- 
mulates college policy, exercises 
administrative control and deter- 
mines budget matters. 

At many institutions where spe- 
cific changes have not been made, 
joint student - faculty - administra- 
tion committees have been formed 
to discuss and make recommenda- 
tions about changes in student

JC Retirees Peed And Baker 
Compile 82 Years Of Service 

Two teachers who are retiring 
this year with a total of 82 years 
of service to the profession were 
honored at a luncheon meeting of 
the faculty of Palm Beach Junior 
College Monday. 

Mrs. Dorothy Peed and Howard 
Baker were presented with a tra- 
ditional gift from the faculty, en- 
graved silver trays, by Dr. Har- 
old C. Manor, PBJC president. 

Mrs. Peed, who began her 
teaching career 39 years ago in 
Deep River, Connecticut, taught 
in Massachusetts and Rhode Is- 
land before moving to Florida in 

She taught in several Florida 
counties, including two years at 
Seacrest High School, before com- 
ing to Palm Beach Junior College 
in 1960. 

Mrs. Peed is well known for her 
advocacy of an inter-disciplinary 
method of teaching explained in 
her book, "America is People and 

Baker began teaching 43 years 
ago in Altoona, Kansas, and 
taught in high schools and colleges 
in Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and 
Missouri before coming to Palm 
Beach Junior College in 1958.

The National Board of Dental 
Examiners reported this week 
that all of the 33 candidates in 
Dental Hygiene from Palm Beach 
Junior College passed the national 
examination, according to Dr. 
Theodore B. Engel, Department 

"This means that 100 per cent 
of our current -graduating class 
may now practice in the 45 states 
which recognize the National 
Boards," Dr. Engel said. 

Florida is "not yet" one of the 
45 states, Dr. Engel said, and 
Florida Boards are scheduled for 
June 26. 

The national exams are "very 
tough," !Dr. Engel said, with 500 
written questions covering every 
phase of theory. They were given 
here April 7 and 8. 

"We have one of the best rec- 
ords in the country," he said. 
"Only two persons have failed in 
the five classes we have had. I 
doubt that any school in the 
country can match this record."

For An 8-County Area Of Florida 

McCart Publishes First Listing Of Plants 

Publication of the first scientific 
list of the flowering plants of an 
eight-county area of Florida, cen- 
tered on Palm Beach County, has 
been completed by William L. 
McCart of the Biology Depart- 

The publication is "not likely to 
become a best seller," McCart 
said, "but is almost out of print 

McCart printed only 50 copies 
of the list, and most of these 
will be used in classes, or sent 
to herbariums throughout the 
United States. 

The list contains the scientific 
and common name of about 700 
different plants, listed by family 
from the most simple to the most 
complex, in accordance with the 
internationally accepted system 
of plant classification. 

It is the direct result of work 
done by students and teachers in 
the college Herbarium, estab- 
lished about a year ago. 

"This information has been 
gathered in a little more than a 
year, and provides an excellent 

basis on which to build a com- 
plete list," McCart said. 

"I think this is a remarkable 
achievement," he continued, "and 
it would not have been possible 
except for the full cooperation of 
the entire biology department, 
particularly Fred HoIIing, Rich- 
ard Gross and their students." 

"There has been some scientific 
work at plant classification in 
Dade, Monroe and Collier Coun- 
ties, but none here," McCart said. 

The list includes plants from 
Broward, Glades, Hendry, Indian 
River, Martin, Okeechobee, and 
St. Lucie Counties, as well as 
Palm Beach. 

Most of the information came 
from plants gathered for the 
herbarium, which now contains 
some 2,000 specimens of dried, 
mounted and correctly classified 
wild plants. 

Each specimen has been gath- 
ered in duplicate and the dupli- 
cate p'ants sent to Dr. Lloyd H. 
Shinners, curator of me herbar- 
ium at Southern Me'hodist Uni- 
versity, a center for the collec- 

tion of plants from the southwest, 
southeast and Caribbean. 

Dr. Shinners will verify the 
classification of each plant, and 
add non-duplicating plants to the 
SMU herbarium. 

There is "considerable scien- 
tific interest" in the list, because 
of the change in climate in part 
of the zone covered, McCart said. 

McCart has also identified 58 
different grasses growing wild in 
the area, including four in cate- 
gory 19-2, the Eragrostis, or 

"Some of the common names, 
like 'Purple Lovegrass' for the 
'spectabilis' are rather pretty," 
McCart said, "but I can't say" I 
care for the common name of the 
Sporobolus poiretii, which is 
called "Rat-tail smutgrass." 

McCart has made something of 
a specialty of grasses, and, un- 
like many other workers in this 
field, tackles grass classification 
without fear.

His experience in collecting ami 
identifying plants in other areas, 
notably in Texas, leads him to 
believe that the list of flowering 
plants in this area will ultimately 
reach near the 1,000 v mark,

consequence to him.

Students Frustrated 
jAf Being A "Smafl Cog' 

(ACP) — Insufficient student responsibility in campus 
j administration is still a major student grievance, according 
; to 60 percent of the student editors polled recently by Associ- 
ated Collegiate Press. 

In a survey of 55 student editors in 27 states, ACP 
[discovered the major student complaint to be student non- 
: involvement in decision-making, coupled with insufficient ad- 
ministrative machinery for dealing with campus problems. 

Students are frustrated "at being a small cog in a big 
machine," with "hard-line" attitudes toward campus unrest, 
and with the excessive power and control exercised by boards 
of trustees. 

Other grievances common among the editors were inade- 
quate parking facilities, inadequate teaching staffs and poor 
relations between the college and- the community. 

Demonstrations were condoned by 65 percent of the edi- 
tors surveyed, while only 45 percent approved of sit-ins as 
a method of correcting campus grievances. Forty percent 
would condone passive resistance to police and administra- 
tors, while only 10 percent felt it was right to barricade 

Fifty percent of the editors felt students arrested for 
campus disorders should be prosecuted. Thirty percent had 
no opinion, or felt individual circumstances had to be con- 
sidered before decisions could be made. 

Twenty percent of the editors felt students should not 
be arrested for creating campus disorders. One editor com- 
mented, "it< seems to me any action occurring in an educa- 
tional institution is separate from the law and disconnected 
with social legal structures." 

Twelf Night At The Crossroads 

'A Truly Fantastic Experience' 

by Suzanne Lash 

'Comber Correspondent 

"It is a fantastic experience," 
said John Schneider, student tech- 
nical director and cast member, 
expressing the feelings of every- 
one connected with "Twelf Night 
at the Crossroads," a musical 
comedy and drama first of the 
PBJC ■theater. 

The play is also exciting. It is 
an original script and as such 
presents a unique challenge and 
experience to the actors. "It's 
never been done before; we have 
to develop the characters from 
scratch," said Schneider. There 
are also brand new songs to learn 
and some as yet to be composed. 

"We've never done a musical 
before," said Schneider adding 
that they have to learn to dance, 
to sing, to do everything. 

It's very demanding; a Broad- 
way musical rehearses eight 
weeks, we only have six." 

Highlights of the play include 
performances of six talented 
"dance -hall girls:" Laura Lee 
Athey, Kay Gawn, Shirley Youn- 
kins, Carleen Layson, Connie 
Middleton, and Laura Bradford. 

The play itself is an adaptation 
of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" 
and though it bears some re- 
semblance to the original, it isn't 
especially close. "An adaptation 
doesn't have to be that close," 
said Schneider. "After all, how 
close can you be with a western." 

But the "fantastic experience" 
is of valuable worth to students 
entering the professional theater. 
The college drama department is 
a workshop preparing students 
for the profession and this mu- 
sical training is of particular 

Because it is a musical, the 
production has integrated talent 
from several areas of the cam- 

pus. The drama and music de- 
partments are working very 
closely to achieve the total effect. 
Mr. Hugh Albee of the music de- 
partment is coaching the sing- 
ers and helping arrange the mu- 
sic and Mr. Sy PryweUer will 
conduct the orchestra. Mrs. Lois 
Meyer is contributing dancing 

and choreographing assistance as 
well as taking a part in the play. 

Student Choreographers, who 
are also dancers, are Chris Holter 
and Gig Kramer. 

"The musicians are working 
very hard," said Schneider. The 
original score has been a group 

Mr. Frank Leahy is director 
and playwright of the swinging 
production; student directors are 
Gerald Matthews and Bill Gass. 

The cast for "Twelf Night at the 
Crossroads" is larger than usual 
but the only problems encoun- 
tered by the numbers is that it 
is naturally harder to coordinate 
that many people. The rehearsals 
have worked with small groups 
and special parts, with the final 
integrated play put together later 
in the rehearsal schedule. 

Despite all the problems en- 
countered in its introduction on 
the PBJC stage, the play prom- 
ises to be one that won't be for- 
gotten soon and one that will be 
enjoyed by the audience along 
with the cast. 

Presentations are scheduled for 
June 12 through 15, at 8:14 in 
the Auditorium. Tickets will be 
on sale for $2 for students and 
$2.50 for adults.

(ACP)— The role of Afro-Ameri- 
can studies in undergraduate edu- 
cation was debated vigorously by 
a militant from San Francisco 
State College and the moderate 
head of the United Negro College 
Fund at the annual meeting of the 
Association of American Colleges 
in Pittsburgh, Pa, 

"A black education which is not 
revolutionary in the current day 
is both irrelevant and useless," 
Nathan Hare, chairman of the de- 
partment of black studies at San 
Francisco State, said. 

"To remain impartial in the 
educational arena is to allow the 
current partiality to whiteness to 
fester. Black education must be 
based on both ideological and 
pedagogical blackness." 

Hare listed 18 goals for Afro- 
American studies, ranging from 
ending white supremacy to pro- 
moting a "black world view." 

Stephan J. Wright, president of 
the United Negro College Fund, 
which represented 36 private, pre- 
dominantly Negro colleges, said 
he agreed with Mr. Hare on some 
points, but questioned two. 

Those were, "To develop a

Valley of Gwangi" the Warner Brothers Seven Arts film thriller 
that combines Sci-Fi with the Western. 

developed the Dynamation proc- 
ess, which is used in a number 
of key scenes. 

"The Valley of Gwangi" was 
filmed by Erwin Hillier one of 
Britain's top cinematographers, 
entirely on location in Almerla, 
and Cuencas, Spain. 

At the southeastern tip of the 
Iberian peninsula, the forbidding 
Mountains of Tabernas serve as 
the plateau setting leading up to 
the "story's pre-historic valley. 

The beautiful centuries-old Ca- 
thedral of Cuencas, some 100 
miles southeast of Madrid, is a 
major setting also, along with Ta- 
berna village, the sand dunes of 
Las Dunas de Cabo de Gata and 
the Bullrings of Berja and AI- 

For scenes in the Almeria 
"Plaza de Toros," Schneer ar- 
ranged with authorities to delay 
for two weeks the beginning of 
the bullfight season. Local affi- 
cionados were furious until they 
were invited to watch the wild- 
west show staged there for a 
film sequence. 

There's not a single motorized 
vehicle used in the film — but 
there are plenty of horses and 
one burro. Vintage wagons and 
buggies of the 1912 era were 
brought from as far away as 

Although director O'Connolly 
easily found dark-haired brown- 
eyed types in Andalucia to por- 
tray North American Indians, he 
had to have their beaded, leather 
costumes and feathered head- 
dresses made in England. 

The film centers around a wild- 
west show's attempt to capture a 
pre-historic monster, so as to in- 
corporate him into the troupe as 
the feature "act"

Wednesday, 11 a.m., in Room 54 
of the Social Science Building. 

A mounted flag of the United 
States, suitably inscribed, seemed 
to Donna Marie Hiers, 320 Ridge-

Dr. Howard Cox, a promina! 
West Palm Beach retiree, («•

"While watching President Eis- 
enhower's funeral, Miss Has 
conceived of the idea of the n» 
mortal flag," Dr. Bottosto sa& 
"and the college is happy to «■

New Groups Form 

Protesters Become Specialized 

(ACP)— Although most student 
protestors are deadly serious 
about achieving their demands, 
some groups are making their 
points in other ways. 

Six blind students at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina have 
demanded blind professors and 
braille textbooks. 

Although they admitted their 
protest was made "to take the 
wind out of the black student 
movement," they also suggested 
blinding everyone so no one 
"would know what's black and 
what's white." 

A group of students at Queens 
College (N. Y.) who call them- 
selves Irish Revolutionaries Inter- 
ested in Scholastic Help (IRISH) 
issued a series of demands to the 
college and took over a campus 
building used for storage. 

Their demands included the ob- 
servance of St. Patrick's Day as 
a holiday and establishment of a 
Gaelic studies program. 

A group of students at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin presented a 
list of demands from the "Homo-

Mr Arthur Musto, actor and 
technical director in the western 
musical entitled, "Twelf Night At

Only one week and a half re- 
mains before opening night sched- 
ued for June 12. 

Musto's strong character role 
of Toby, the drunken uncle of a 
saloon hostess, has been filled by 
John A. Murphy, a former stu- 

Murphy, who is a '66 graduate 
of PBJC and of Southern Metho- 
dist University, was the narrator 
of the popular play "Tom Jones," 

presented here in 1967* 

Although Murphy is an extreme- 
ly creative individual, a great 
deal of effort from the entire 
cast and of Murphy is necessary 
to compensate for Musto's sud- 
den illness.

Frank Leahy will be working in-

War -Urban Crisis Related 

iACP) - The crisis of the cities and the war in Vietnam 
became even stranger bedfellows this summer as the ghettos 
in some 50 urban areas exploded and as the war in Vietnam 
took on an even greater intensity. 

Undoubtedly the ultimate political impact of this sum- 
mer's events has "been and will be greater than any event since 
the Korean War. Nevertheless, this impact has many ramifi- 

Anv direct linkage between the war and the urban explo- 
sion must he considered tenuous at best. However, the indirect 
linkages are many. The war draws to rebuild the cities, and 
civil rights advocates often charge that Negroes are being 
sent to fight a war in which they have no personal stake. 

And it is perhaps a sad commentary on the state of affairs 
in the United States that even after some 10 years of court 
decisions and legislation, the most integrated sector of Ameri- 
can society and the one where the Negro can rise fastest 
is the military. 

However, the stance of the United States in Vietnam also 
has legal and political bases, and the results if we were to 
suddenly withdraw would be profound. Nevertheless, the war 
as it is presently being fought does not seem to be bringing 

After nearly three years of U. S. bombing, Hanoi has 
given no indication of a willingness to come to the confer- 
ence table. In South Vietnam five village pacification pro- 
grams have been tried and have failed. 

With the present situation in mind and the possibility 
of a war of attrition which will last another 10 or 20 years, 
perhaps a reassessment of our nation's priorities is necessary.

lots Aid Lots Of fioleice 


by Lewis Hyde 
ACP Reviewer 

"Where Eagles Dare," with 
Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood, 
and Mary Ure, is a spy adven- 
ture set in the Austrian Alps dur- 
ing World War II. 

Burton and Eastwood penetrate 
an impenetrable castle to free a 
captured British flyer. Like all 
good spy stories, the tale becomes 
endlessly complicated and con- 
voluted before the end. 

The tension stays high. As soon 
as you figure out what's hap- 
pening, it isn't. 

During the brief periods when 
you know what's going on, the 
tension is maintained by intensely 
dangerous situations and showers 
of_ violence and brutality like in 
any nine million dollar movie. 

Burton plays the infallible lead 
spy, always ahead of the other 
men, fast and cool. It's a simple 
part and he does it well. 

Eastwood plays the American 
from Montana; not quite with it, 
doing his job well, saying slight, 
low-key witicisms whenever he 
kills someone. 

The form of the movie is ab- 
solute Hollywood, bordering on 
spoof. . 

The Germans speak English 
with German accents, the Gestapo 
chief is blond and angular, every 
passing train whistles, the Ger- 

man general wears a monocle, 
none of the good guys gets hurt, 
Germans die like flies, a helicop- 
ter appears years before its in- 
vention, every plant that's hit 
burns, every car that crashes 
blows up, a girl is parachuted in 
so the publicity can show Burton 
smooching ... the list goes on. 

Reality is casually sacrificed to 
entertain. All movies do it. How- 
ever, the departures in this one 
are cliched that, compounded with 
the excessive and formulaic vio- 
lence, the movie ends up uncre- 
ative, retarded. 

It could have been made in 
1942 (except no one found the war 
entertaining then). 

I talked to the director, Brian 
Hutton, and asked, "Well, do you 
like your movie?" 

He told us, "a film it's not; 
a movie, yes. It's for the guy who 
works in the factory six days a 
week for $2.50 an hour. It hits 
him on the head — not that he 
needs it, ha ha— but it's not Antoni- 
oni, it's not Bergman. . ." And, 
Clint Eastwood told us, "I per- 
sonally don't like message films." 

One can't help but agree. You'd 
sound rather pompous to claim 
that an uncreative movie wi l h no 
point ought not to have been 

Nonetheless, the movie is evil. 

First, there's the violence. Vio- 
lence is normal, I know, but let

Draft Board Forced To Think Twice 

Clark Kissinger, an ex-leader of 
the Students for a Democratic 
Society (SDS), wrote the follow-

receiving an induction notice. 

"I am currently employed doing 
fullitime anti-war work among

however, that I be transferred to 
doing anti-war organizing among 
the troops, I shall cheerfully re- 
port for induction." 

Still Good In The World 

There still is good in the world, 
maintains Jon Scott Haroldsen, a 
junior political science student at 
Brigham Young University. 

When Jon returned to class, he 
was questioned about his recent 
absence by a female classmate. 

He explained, that he had been 
absent because his wife had just 
had a baby boy. 

Later when he was leaving 
class, the girl handed him a piece 
of folded paper. Inside he found 
a five-dollar bill. 

"I don't even know her name," 
Jon said. 

'John' Goes Up In Smoke 

The "john" in a girl's residence 
hall at the University of Tennes- 
see has gone up in smoke. 

Four girls, Carol Deal, Paula 
Scalici, Pam Clark and Sally Con- 
rad, recently papered the walls 
of the bathroom with empty cig- 
arette packages. 

The girls were collecting the 
packages for a local merchant 
who had promised to. donate a 
pint of blood for a child in Knox- 
ville Hospital suffering from Leu- 

Future plans include papering 

the ceiling, as well as the suite 
of the assistant resident, who 
liked the idea.

Teacher Flunks Out 

A math instructor at Ohio's 
Wright State University is ap- 
parently "flunking out" because 

me explain. A man burns up. An- 
other is fighting with Burton on 
top of a cable car high above 
the valley. Burton takes his ice 
pick and embeds it in the man's 

At one point they must kill a 
radio operator. For reasons of 
plot — the man has to turn in 
an alarm before he dies — he's 
stabbed instead of shot. Clint, 
therefore, creeps up on him for 
at least 30 seconds. 

Lotsa other folks get killed, too, : 
but none of them are human. 
They're just Fascists or some- : 

Violence in movies isn't wrotig. 
But violence which de-humanizes 
the victims and keeps us from 
thinking is. 

As an aside, I'll mention thai 5 
no one at MGM seems to care 
about violence. We talked to co- ' 
producer Jerry Gershwin. He 
doesn't give a damn. 
We quizzed _the new MGM ores- J (ACP) — While more and more

~ says much of what is called in- 

rovation is really "renovation 

and tinkering." 

In many cases, as Michigan 
State University researchers have 
pointed out in a new study of 
undergraduate curriculum trends, 
the changes were not original con- 

What was innovative in one in- 
stitution may already have be-

Samuel Baskin, president of the

■ noted that much of what passes

In independent study, for in- 
stance, "if the faculty member's 
basic attitude toward the student 
hasn't changed, and if he is still 
directing the student in one way 
or another, then independence in 
learning isn't being developed." 

Baskin listed six major types of

a pluralistic society, "You get

seemed to be that people want to 
see violence.

a good adventure movie. It's alsa 
a big, expensive, golden egg.

9 Expanding the role of re-

Amid all the so-called new de- 
velopments, Baskin believes two 
may represent "new models for 
teaching and learning." 

One is the "eollege of disper- 
sion" in which students study and 
work in a cross-cultural environ- 

"Beach-head colleges" such as 
those operated by the union in 
Appalachia and Hawaii, and "store- 
front colleges, "if taken to their 
fullest realization, become col- 
leges without walls," Baskin said. 

In such environments, students 
and faculty work together in the

riculum" with on -going semi- 
nars. The life of action and the 
life of reflection are combined, 

it is hoped, into a single experi- 

The second innovation, accord- 
ing to Baskin, is the experimental 
college run jointly by students 
and faculty. 

"When students and faculty 
plan the curriculum together, 
you're getting into some pretty 
basic redevelopments," Baskin 

Curriculum researchers feel 
sound innovation — which comes 
about when ideas and practices 
are organized in new and crea- 
tive ways into a coherent whole 
to promote student learning — is 

"Faculty interests, publicity, 
institutional prestige, opportunism 
and experience in responding to 
pressures or to availability of fi- 
nancial resources are more potent 
determiners of specific change 
than is deliberation based on edu- 
cational goals, social needs and 
the abilities and aspirations of 
students," researchers report. 

The forces creating change over 
the past 10 years are essentially 
no different from those bringing 
about earlier changes, the report

When an extra platoon showed 
up for ROTC drill at the Uni- 
versity of Mississippi at Oxford 
recently, eight students were ar- 
rested for disturbing the peace. 

Six boys and two girls, calling 
themselves the "Mickey Mouse 
Platoon" arrived for ROTC drill 
dressed in psuedo-army uniforms 
carrying a white flag with a pic- 
ture of Mickey Mouse and ROTC 
printed on it. 

When they refused to leave, 
they were arrested by campus

taken to jail. 

They were charged with dis-

'Marriage Squeeze' Causes 

As a result of the war-baby 
boom, there's a severe shortage 
of eligible men for today's mar- 
riageable girls. 

Girls who would normally have 
married for the first time in 1967, 
1968 or 1969 are the victims of 
what Dr. Paul C. Glick, assist- 
ant chief, Population Division, 
U. S. Bureau of Census, calls 
the "marriage squeeze." 

At the time of the 1947 "baby- 
boom" nobody stopped to think 
that girls would probably want 
to marry boys two years older 
(born in 1945) and that there were 
a half million more girls born in 
1947 than there were boys in 1945. 

Five possibilities for coping with 
the man shortage problem and 
the marriage squeeze are: (1) go 
after the hard-core bachelors, 
(2) rob the cradle, (3) displace 
older wives, (4) wait for the boys 
their age to grow up, or (5) stay 

Nude Runners 
Do Their Thing 

The barrage of nude runners 
at the University of Maryland 
represents the latest in the fad- 
makers repertoire. 

The "raw - runners" said they 
make their runs "to relive bore- 
dom and because it's a fad." 

"It's been a long winter," said 
Robert S. Waldrop, psychology 
professor at the University. He 
attributed part of the blame to 
controversy over the University's 
literary magazine which recently 
published 10 nude photographs 
which upset state legislators. 

Waldrop was even optimistic 

about the implications of the runs. 
"It shows we have imaginative, 
creative students. People have 
been cooped up all winter he said, 
"They wanted to get out."

Donna Vandiver Knapp, gradu-

In Honor

"Let us today, 

Who breathe the final sweetness 

of May,

For those who trod the sacrificial 

way 1 
sacred sod, 
And endeared dust, 
Thus would we keep our trust, 
Our trust which is remembrance, 

and the just 
Tribute to those who fought and 

who found their God!" 

We pause for a few minutes 
at eleven o'clock to honor all our 
fighting men of all past wars. 

This Memorial Day of 1969 we 
think especially of our gallant 
young men who are fighting the 
frustrating war in Vietnam and 
those who have died there and 
who are dying there at this very 

During the past 12 months I 
have received six letters from 
some of our PBJC young men 
who are now in Vietnam. I should 
like to lift from these letters 
three sentences and share them 
with you this morning. 

One young man wrote: "There 
is so much hate in our world to- 
day. Tell them that life has true 
meaning only through love." 

Another one of our junior col- 
lege alumni wrote from Vietnam: 
"No matter how cruel, heartless 
or hateful my surroundings may 
be, I refuse bitterness." 

And finally this sentence from 
a letter which a former student 
wrote from Vietnam only this 
past March: "Today I learned 
forgiveness. I helped a wounded 
enemy soldier." 

Since 1963 Memorial Day has 
taken on a new aspect for many 
Americans, both because of the 
closeness of the date to the birth- 
day, May 29, of the youthful, 
assassinated 35th President of the 
United States, John F. Kennedy, 
and because of the location of the 
late President's grave on a hill- 
side in Arlington National Ceme- 

Today is May 29 — and John 
F. Kennedy would have been 52 
years old today. Five and a half 
eventful years have passed since 
an assassin's bullet ended the life 
of John F. Kennedy These were 
years in which he, had he lived, 
would have been confronted with 
some of the most critical deci- 
sions ever to be faced by a Chief 
Executive in all the history of 
his nation. 

How John F. Kennedy would 
lave resolved these decisions 
nust be a matter of conjecture. 
But there is little doubt that all 
Americans, who carry the bright 
JFK image in their hearts, be- 
lieve that he would have acted 
with wisdom, with courage, and 
with honor.

It is too soon to assess the Ken- 
nedy years in the light of histori- 
cal perspective. It is a certainty, 
however, that history will see 
John F. Kennedy as the first 
United States President to be con- 
fronted with the very real possi- 
bility of nuclear war, and will 
reserve a special chapter for his 
calm courage and unshakeable de- 
termination in the now-famous 
face-down of Soviet Premier Ni- 
kita Khrushchev during the Cuban 

It has often been said that the 
memory of America's youngest 
President will never die, and it 
is not only Americans who will 
never forget John F. Kennedy. He 
had the magic touch to generate 
love and respect m the hearts of 
people of all nations. 

He was cheered by people with 
tears in their eyes in the shadow 
of the Berlin Wall. England has 
set aside an acre of its hallowed 
ground at Runnymede, site of 
the signing of the Magna Carta, 
for a Kennedy Memorial — and 
there are many, many other such 
tributes all across the world. 
John F. Kennedy's memory is 
treasured not only as a symbol 
of the American way of life, but 
as a symbol of humanity's noblest 
aspirations by all people every- 
where who believe — as he be- 
lieved — in the ultimate of jus- 
tice and freedom. 

With pride shall we ever recall 
his heroism in battle, his courage 
in the face of injury and illness, 
his complete dedication to the 

ideal of liberty for all men and 
all races. 

For John Fitzgerald Kennedy 
was not an ordinary man. He was 
the first President born in this 
century, the first of the Catholic 
faith, the first to reach out to 
space, the first to care deeply 
about the quality of American 
life. There were poets at his In- 
augural. That special Kennedy 
quality that some called by the 
superficial name of "style" was 
in reality his insistence on ex- 
cellence — excellence for his 
country and for himself, excel- 
lence in matters of talent as well 
as taste. One of his closest friends 
said of him: "He was eloquent 
but never pompous, tough but al- 
ways gentle, an idealist but still 

a realist. He understood the dif- 
ference between patience and 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy had a 
special appeal to the youth of 
America. His outlook of optimism 
and courage was understood by 
young America, and indeed, by 
youth throughout the world. He 
inspired them by his eloquence. 
He energized them through his 
own vitality, but the most im- 
portant contribution was his per- 
suasive argument to the young 
people of our country to enter 
the field of politics and govern- 
ment. He regarded politics as one 
of the highest forms of human 
endeavor and he considered serv- 
ice to his country second to none 
in the fulfillment of a meaning-

Shakespearian Adaptation -Home Made Success 

Twelfth Night At The Crossroads 

by Peggy Cullen 

'Comljcr Associate Editor 

An hilarious adaptation of Shake- 
speares' 17th. century play, "The 
twelfth Night," both amused and 
charmed audiences last weekend 
*rth the dynamic presentation of 
E6 musical western, "The Twelfth 
Sight At the Crossroads." 

The production was as home 
sade as apple pie, yet extreme- 
ly professional. Director, Frank 
Leahy rewrote the entire script 

while Marlene Roughton and Bill 
'Donahue scored and composed all 
the music in the play. Student di- 
rectors were William Gass and 
Gerald Matthews. 

Although the cast was one of 
the largest on the PBJC stage, 
this production was one of the 
best balanced productions, includ- 
ing acting, music and technical 
aspects, ever presented here. 

The time of the play was 1869, 
the place was Nevada Territory, 

the scene of one of the most com- 
plicating predicaments between 
the sexes that probably ever oc- 

Maggie O'Hara, who dressed as 
a cowboy to conceal her sex in 
case of Indian attack, was por- 
trayed by Marlene Roughton. She 
was mistaken to be her twin 
brother Michael, enacted by the 
versatile Gig Kramer.

A Gross Mistake 

A decision b\ the Florida State Board of Regents to 
award a franchise for a state college of journalism at Florida 
State University appears to be a gross misjudgment on the 
part of the board. 

We feel that the University of South Florida was the 
most logical, if not the only choice for the establishment of 
such a school. 

South Florida boasts not only one of the nation's leading 
student newspapers, The Oracle, which recently won the 
Associated Collegiate Press award of Pacemaker given to only 
five colleges in the country, but has as the head of its jour- 
nalism department one of the most outstanding men in the 
field of journalism, Arthur Sanderson. 

We feel that the board of regents should open this mat- 
ter up for further study. 

Their misjudgment may have forced South Florida stu- 
dents to -spend thousands of dollars to attend a school of

Dr. Samuel Bottosto, head of 
the Social Science Department, is 
a person who has prepared him- 
self to be a teacher since the 
sixth grade. 

He feels that his background 
and preparation equip him unique- 
ly to guide and counsel young 
people who are undergoing a 
collegiate experience in one form 
or another. 

When asked about his philoso- 
phy of education he answered: 

"It is based on assisting people 
to achieve a sense of fulfillment 
and to help them to do the thing 
they can and want to do." 

Many of the students on cam- 
pus who have had an opportunity 
to hear him lecture, are of the 
opinion that he is both subjec- 
tive and overly-critical in his 

This is due in part, to his tech- 
nique of teaching; one of provok- 
ing his students into participat- 
ing in class discussions. 

Another reason for this type 
of opinion results from negative 
thinking on the part of the stu- 

Probably a majority of these 
students feel they are being crit- 
icized when in reality they are 
being stimulated to think. 

Dr. Bottosto feels that provoca- 
tion or excitement in teaching 
will heighten the interest in teach-

ing, and remarked that "The 
'cardinal crime' in teaching is to 
be a bore." 

Anyone who has ever sat in 
a classroom for an hour, or an 
hour-and-a-half and listened to an 
instructor mumble words right 
out of his notes in the same 
nauseating tone of voice, would 
readily welcome a provocative 
technique of instruction. 

Aside from his educational in- 
terests, Dr. Bottosto has strong 
opinions on problems confronting 
our country as a whole: 

"The most volatile situation in 
American culture at this time, is 
our continued failure to meet the 
challenge to include the Ameri- 

can Negro fully and completely 
into American Society. 

The process of including Ne- 
gros into American Society has 
barely begun — the answer to 
this problem lies on our College 

Dr. Bottosto, hailed by many 
as one of the most prominent 
and interesting figures on our 
campus, closed with a note of 

"I think we will proceed grad- 
ually toward a more sane and 
responsible system, improve the 
quality of associated living in 
America, and a new Golden Era 
of human relationship around the

MGM Spectacular Back To Haunt Moviegoers 

by Ray Olson 

ACP Movie Reviewer 
Nearly ten years after its in- 
itial thunderous success, "Ben- 
Hur," that landmark of Fifties 
cinematic schlock, is being hauled 

out again for what it's worth to 

The logic behind the re-release 
ts, apparently, that if people lined 
up for it once, they'll do it again. 

MGM's reasoning rests on the 


''I JUST PI WT THINK AHYcHB coaiv ?oa6\3\x 

assumption that "Ben-Hur" is 
like '"Gone With the Wind," a 
perenially popular attraction — 
one that each succeeding genera- 
tion of moviegoers will want to 

What's so great about "Ben- 
Hur?" The question was on my 
mind when, after two days of 
bondage to a press schedule of 
interviews and various entertain- 
ments designed to keep us review- 
ers happy and well-oiled, I fi- 
nally saw the Second World Pre- 
mier of "Ben-Hur" in Miami 
Beach, Feb. 25. 

If it did nothing else, the ex- 
perience answered my question. 
"Ben-Hur" is the great Big Deal 
of American movies. That's 
what's so great about it. 

It is spectacular, technically 
mervelous, exciting but not too 
exciting, and above all, bland 
enough for the whole family. 

Big Deal. 


Not even "Gone With the Wind" 
can compare with it. After all, 
that picture includes some very 
explicit sexual tension and one 
daring little "damn" in the dia- 

But "Ben-Hur!" 

It's a "Tale of the Christ." It 
scores on all bases. In its simple 
(!) story of a rich young Jew, 
clria 140 A.D., who by various 
dramatic turns of fate, loses all 
and then gains more, it shows 
the triumphs of good over evil, 
of truth over falsehood, of love 
over hate (not to mention over 
sex, for sex never must be men- 

tioned) and of Faith over the 
World. And all of this without a 
single syllable of even the mild- 
est profanity. 

As the gilt edge on this mas- 
sive tapestry of Virtue Trium- 
phant, you know Who shows up 
whenever the going gets rough. 

At the end of the film, you 
can bet your crucifix we're not 
just going back to Tara where 
it'll all look better in the morn- 
ing. We're storming them heaven- 
ly gates with Ben-Hur and Him. 

And that is indeed a Big Deal. 
Unfortunately, like most Big 
Deals, it is impressive only to 
the undiscriminating eye. 


In order to fully enjoy "Ben- 
Hur," you must watch it without 
esthetic judgment. If you caa do 
this, you can easily accept it for 
the milestone of lame-brained art 
that it is. 

If you can't suspend judgment, 
you're bound to notice "Ben-Hur" 
is pretty thin stuff. The plot is 
hopelessly episodic— the only way 
continity is maintained is by be- 
ginning or ending each major se- 
quence with an explanation of 
what it or the next sequence ml 
be about. 

This necessary practice ulti- 
mately gives the impression the

sider the disgustingly pious way 
the movie treats Him. The face 
of Jesus is never shown, His 
words are never heard, and con- 
sequently, the force of His thought 
is never felt. 

MGM spent fifteen million dol- 
lars making "Ben-Hur" into the 
biggest load of cheap thrills ever, 
and, by golly, that's exactly what 
it is. 

Enjoy it for all that, no ques- 
tions asked, and it really may 
seem deserving of its eleven Os- 
cars, Second World Premier and 
all the other ballyhoo that has 
made it the most honored motion 
picture of all time and the great 
Big Deal of the century. 

Myers added that despite a 
flood of requests from some of 
the countrys top stock car driv- 
ers, the organization has elected 
to recruit drivers from among the 
nation's leading disc jockeys and 
radio-TV sportscasters, who, he 
said, have logged more miles at 
speed on golf carts than any other 
ethnic group. 

"The decision was made in the 
interest of safety," said Myers, a 
disc jockey for KOGO radio in 
San Diego — who coincidentally 
will drive a cart in the fray.

F. lee Bailey Explains 
The Criminal Lawyer 

(ACP) — Mention the name Francis Lee Bailey and a 
person is likely to visualize a flamboyant and successful trial 
lawyer living an exciting, glamorous life. 

"My public image is grossly exaggerated," he claims. 
"Nobody lives like Perry Mason, except maybe Raymond 

The 35-year-old criminal lawyer has gained both fame 
and notoriety for his defenses of Sam Sheppard, Carl Cop- 
polino, Albert DeSalvo, the self-proclaimed "Boston Strangler," 
and Charles Schmidt, the "Pied Piper of Tucson." 

In his speech to the Arizona trial lawyers, Bailey dis- 
cussed techniques and presentation of evidence in criminal 

Bailey said an average murder case requires over 500 
hours of advance preparation, In an extraordinary case such 
as the trial of Sheppard, thousands of hours are needed, 

"The search for truth is secondary today," he explained. 
"The criminal lawyer searches instead for evidence which 
will raise a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed 
the crime." 

He said almost anything is admissible as evidence if pre- 
sented in the right way and almost anything is objectionable 
if presented in the wrong way. 

"There are two good reasons for video tape," he pointed 
out. "First, it makes a good record. Second, it is possible to 
go back over the tape and sec the reaction of your client to 
certain questions. This is important in evaluating the credi- 
bility of bis story and cannot be determined by just bearing 
his voice." 

Bailey said the basis of a good defense depends largely 
on the defense counsel's confidence that his client is telling 
the truth. 

Speed is the utmost importance to the defense counsel, 
said Bailey. He commented, "a lawyer should be able to ques- 
tion faster than a lying witness can make up answers." 

Bailey has had plenty of experience in using these tech- 
niques while achieving varying degrees of success since his 
graduation from the Boston University Law School in I960. 

A Time Saver 

(ACP) — College students can 
learn as much basic economics 
in 12 hours of self-teaching with 
programmed textbooks as they 
do in 42 hours of regular class- 
room instruction, according to a 
study presented at the annual 
meeting of American Economic 
Association m Chicago, Illinois. 

Students who learned through 
the programmed texts performed 
better on "complex application" 
than on "simple recognition" 
questions, and seemed to have a 
generally positive attitude toward 
the program, authors of the study
